“I felt like playing with the Clippers was an opportunity to win now,” Collison said. “I couldn’t care less how old I am or how young I am, I want to win now. Regardless, if I come off the bench or however many minutes they want to play me, I want to be on a championship team.” NBA.com

“He knows I’m grown. I’m a lot more mature,” Collison said. “That was my first year coming into the NBA and everything was so new to me, where I kind of had to learn from him. I know coming into this year I don’t have to learn too much. I can kind of just play my game, but at the same time I can still get better playing against him in practice. My decision wasn’t to come back and learn from him, you know what I mean. My decision was to try to win. It’s just the best of both worlds. I get a chance to do it with one of the best point guards in the NBA.” NBA.com

Q: Doc, you've been a part of big splashes before, and I have to imagine that as Chris (Paul) and those guys were introduced (at the Wednesday press conference in Los Angeles) that the presser with KG crossed your mind at some point. Does this experience remind you of that one at all in terms of the major makeover and instant expectation? Doc Rivers: "Well, Chris is going to be a Hall of Famer, and so should Blake (Griffin) and DJ (DeAndre Jordan), hopefully, but we were getting (surefire future Hall of Famers). Paul was and Ray and Kevin are, so in that terms, that day is bigger just because of those three guys. You just don't bring those three guys together very often. This was neater in one way in that it was more about the key guys, signing Chris back, bringing Matt back, and getting Darren Collison and JJ Redick and Jared Dudley, it's more that we're building this team, and that was a great message … I couldn't have asked for a better day."

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. RealGM
