As the second day of NBA free agency moved along Tuesday, the Clippers had not made any moves yet to improve their team. The Clippers had called point guard Darren Collison on Monday night, when NBA teams were first allowed to talk to free agents, but no deal has been reached, and there were no conversations with his representatives Tuesday, according to NBA officials who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Collison is an unrestricted free agent, having opted out of a contract that would have paid him $1.9 million next season. Los Angeles Times

The Clippers coach and president of basketball operations will make the final decision on all things Clippers and is the one who, without mentioning Darren Collison by name, made it known that his free-agent point guard is priority No. 1. Collison, who opted out of the contract that would have paid him $1.985 million next season, probably will learn that his representatives were the first people Rivers called when the NBA's free-agency period started at 9:01 p.m. Pacific time Monday. "You know our first guy, I'll be honest, is one of our guys that opted out," Rivers said. "He's a little guy. That's very important for us." Los Angeles Times

Collison, who signed with the Clippers last summer, will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1 after reportedly declining the player option on his contract. He said things could be “interesting” when asked about what lies ahead this offseason during his annual basketball camp Wednesday. “Hopefully, we can get something together,” Collison said. “I want to be back, but I understand the business side of things. I know there are going to be some teams out there that are going to be wanting me. What I want is to be with the Clippers. That’s my main goal is to come back.” NBA.com
