Darren Collison is headed to Los Angeles Tuesday to see a specialist regarding his right hip flexor strain, Sacramento coach George Karl said after Monday’s practice. Collison, the Kings' starting point guard, has missed six consecutive games and Sacramento is 2-4 in his absence. CSNBayArea.com

Also making an appearance in the league’s top 30 turnover machines are small forward Rudy Gay (2.6 per game) and point guard Darren Collison (2.5), ranked 25th and 29th respectively among qualified players. Gay has been a culprit of too many dribbles, while Collison has been guilty of forcing feeds. But to be clear, this has been a team-wide epidemic. “Turnovers, basically, I tell them all the time, don’t be Magic Johnson,” Karl told the media after his first practice. “Just be a good basketball player. And good basketball players don’t make bad decisions. Make good, solid decisions, don’t try to make the Magic Johnson pass, because that’s when I think instead of throwing a pass that gets made 98 percent of the time, which it should be, we throw passes that have a 60/40 ratio, and that’s not even good for a quarterback in football.” Cowbell Kingdom

The Nets have been in discussions about trading either Lopez or Deron Williams this season, including talks with the Kings that would have centered around Williams going to Sacramento in exchange for Darren Collison, Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams. Those talks were held up, however, by the Kings being interested in Mason Plumlee and the Nets in rookie Nik Stauskas, both non-starters for the other team. New York Post

A hiccup in the trade is Sacramento coveting Mason Plumlee, who is not part of the deal as currently proposed. Plumlee would upgrade the Kings at the power forward spot forming an imposing frontcourt along with DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay. All three were teammates on Team USA that captured the FIBA World Cup in Spain this offseason. CSNBayArea.com
