If you have been at an airport in the United States in the last few weeks, you had a better-than-average chance to run into BYU men's basketball's triple-double legend himself.

And yes, Kyle Collinsworth is getting sick of airports.

He's been busy going all over the country working out for a variety of NBA teams, looking to catch someone's attention. His latest stop, however, was back home as he spent Friday morning showing the Utah Jazz what he could do.

"It is good to be home," Collinsworth said. "I was in Toronto, so I flew home Wednesday night. I spent it with my sister and her family, who live in Salt Lake. It was nice to be with them and hang out at home for a little bit."

The former Provo High star and Cougar said he was pretty happy with how he performed in the workouts.

"I did pretty good," Collinsworth said. "The altitude wasn't too hard for me, so that was nice. A lot of the guys were talking about their lungs with the altitude. I was able to breath and I'm in pretty good shape, so it was a good workout."

And having it be in a Jazz practice uniform was an added bonus.

"I liked the Jazz and I liked the Sonics," Collinsworth said. "I grew up here watching the Jazz, I went to Jazz games with my dad, so it's cool to be able to work out for them and participate in this."

He explained that he believes his biggest strengths are in his ability to use his size.

"My strength is in my size and my ability to use pick-and-roll, see over defenders, play off the pick and roll and get to the basket," Collinsworth said. "It's the same things I did in college, get to the rim and find guys."

Collinsworth said NBA teams are telling him to keep developing his shot.

"I didn't shoot a lot of 3-pointers in college and now it is a little deeper, but I've made improvements," Collinsworth said. "The word is to keep developing that and keep working."

Jazz Vice President of Player Personnel, Walt Perrin, said that is the area where Collinsworth has to be able to demonstrate he can succeed.

"Size helps because he can look over smaller players," Perrin said. "Passing ability helps. He's not overly long with as tall as he is. That will translate to the NBA but he's got to be able to knock down open shots. The ability on our level to space the floor a lot better than on the collegiate level will help him because he can put it on the floor and get by people."

Collinsworth said he thought he was "solid" with his shooting in the Jazz workout and was pretty pleased.

It's been a process for the former BYU star as he's tried to position himself to get to the next level.

"The first couple of workouts, you get in there and you don't know what is going to happen," Collinsworth said. "You kind of get a little anxious but after you get that first one under your belt, you realize it's just going out there and playing. The biggest thing is just staying in the moment. You travel a lot, so I've tried to enjoy each city I go to, do fun things and relax and stay in the moment. You only do this process once, so I'm trying to make the most of it."

His next destination, however, will not be for a basketball workout. He's headed to Oregon to watch his wife, Shea Martinez-Collinsworth, run in the 800-meter finals in the NCAA Track and Field Championships on Saturday after she had the fastest time in the nation in the qualifying heats.

"It's crazy," Kyle said. "She's running for a national championship. I'm going to fly out tonight and make it since I don't have my next workout until Tuesday (in Milwaukee). It will be nice to be able to see her race for a national championship. We try to be supportive even though we haven't seen each other for awhile."

Kyle said he recognizes there are a lot of unknowns with regards to his future and so he's not looking too far down the road.

"You try to take care of business every day and get better," Kyle said. "You put it all out there and it will take care of itself."
