According to reports from LatinBasket.com, Sherron Collins has been released from his team in Puerto Rico after one day.

Collins had recently signed a new contract with the Quebradillas Pirates and according to his Twitter account had arrived in Puerto Rico on June 7.

"Quebradillas decided to part ways with Sherron Collins (180-G-87, college: Kansas) just one day after his arrival. According to some sources, the former NBA player was not in shape and that was the reason why Quebradillas decided not to keep him."

The former Kansas Jayhawk went undrafted in the 2010 NBA Draft but was later picked up by the Charlotte Bobcats.  Collins spent some of his rookie season with the Bobcats averaging 0.9 points per game.  On February 24, 2011, Collins was waived by the Bobcats in order to make roster room.

Reports surfaced that the Bobcats attempted to re-sign Collins, but after two missed flights which had been arranged from his hometown of Chicago to Charlotte, the organization decided to go a different way.

Sherron Collins averaged 15.5 points per game and 4.5 assists per game during his four-year tenure (2006-2010) at the University of Kansas.
