Darren Collison Sorting Through Interest, Isn't Closing Possible Mavericks Return
Free agent point guard Darren Collison is intrigued by four teams as a possible landing spot and hasn’t yet ruled out a return to the Dallas Mavericks, a league source told RealGM.
Like so many across NBA free agency, Collison’s future has been placed on hold by the decision Dwight Howard will make about the team he’ll sign with. As an unrestricted free agent, Collison knows the importance of utilizing his options and “really wants to get his choice right,” a source said. The Mavericks didn’t extend Collison a qualifying offer.
Despite a fast start to the season, Collison seemed to fall out of favor within the Mavericks’ rotation. Still, the 25-year-old averaged 12 points, 5.1 assists and a career-high 47.1 percent shooting in 81 games.
