The Los Angeles Clippers have prioritized re-signing Darren Collison, who opted out of his contract early in the offseason.

"You know our first guy, I'll be honest, is one of our guys that opted out," Doc Rivers said. "He's a little guy. That's very important for us."

The Clippers are expected to reach out to Collison's representatives at the outset of free agency.

The Clippers are also expected to try to upgrade their small forward position and Rivers has been trying to trade Matt Barnes.
