Darren Collison

  1. Mark Cuban has spirited defense of Calderon signing

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    A+E Networks Hosts the NCTA Reception - Arrivals

    I liked the Jose Calderon signing by Dallas. They get a quality point guard — 11.6 points and 6.6 assists a game, plays smart, had a PER of 18.2 and shot 52 percent from three last year — for a reasonable price (four years, $29 million). Remember last season with the failed Darren Collison experiment…

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    Teams began entering into agreements with free agent players shortly after midnight Eastern on July 1, but due to a league-imposed moratorium on activity, no deals can be officially signed until July 10. We’re almost there, and plenty of the top names available have indeed been swooped up by teams looking to make a splash…

  4. Clippers agree to one-year deal with Ryan Hollins

    Jul 7, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have had a very successful offseason. They’ve signed Chris Paul to a max contract, re-signed Matt Barnes, traded for Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick to get help on the wing and some solid perimeter shooting, and replaced Eric Bledsoe with Darren Collison as a backup to Paul at a very reasonable price. They can’t…

  5. Devin Harris agrees to three-year deal with the Mavericks

    Jul 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Pacers Hawks basketball

    The Mavericks have targeted another player at the guard position, after already adding three of them to the roster this offseason. From Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas: The Dallas Mavericks and guard Devin Harris are close to finalizing a three-year deal worth in excess of $9 million, sources told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein. The Mavs struck an agreement Saturday to…

  6. Darren Collison agrees to two-year deal with the Clippers

    Jul 6, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    Darren Collison

    When the Clippers engaged in the three-team deal that sent dynamic point guard Eric Bledsoe to Phoenix in exchange for Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick, they improved at the wing and shooting guard positions but suffered a substantial loss in terms of a capable backup to Chris Paul. The Clippers continued their shrewd offseason decision-making…

  7. Jose Calderon to sign with Mavericks

    Jul 6, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Jose Calderon drives up the court as Dallas Mavericks Brandan Wright follows during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    The Mavericks were so bad at point guard last season, they brought in 38-year-old Derek Fisher and 37-year-old Mike James to start. Dallas’ best point guard, Darren Collison, is a free agent now, so the Mavericks are going with a full-blow youth movement at the position. Enter 31-year-old Jose Calderon. Marc Stein of ESPN: The…

  8. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  9. Report: Mavericks agree to terms with Israeli guard Mekel; talk to Calderon, Williams

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    Gal Mekel

    The Dallas Mavericks need a point guard, especially since they are letting Darren Collison walk. Well, they’ve agreed to terms with one guy who can be their backup and reached out to Mo Williams and Jose Calderon to likely be the starter. We know that Israeli based Gal Mekel has agreed to terms on a…

  10. Mavericks allow Darren Collison to become unrestricted free agent

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Darren Collison

    Darren Collison might have played himself out of a contract offer from the Mavericks. Collison – by averaging 41 starts or 2,000 minutes in the last two seasons of his rookie-scale contract (he actually did both) – increased his qualifying offer from $3,342,175 to $4,531,459, and the Mavericks declined to extend that higher offer by…

  11. George Hill injury jeopardizes Pacers’ identity

    May 17, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    George Hill, Roy Hibbert, D.J. Augustin

    The puzzle pieces have changed, but the picture of the sailboat they form has not. Under Frank Vogel, the Pacers have relied heavily on their starters. Between them, George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert excel in all areas of the court, offensively and defensively, and really balance each other. But…

  12. Mavericks want to make Dirk Nowitzki their second-best player

    Apr 21, 2013, 11:32 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Ryan Anderson

    For the first time since the 1999-00 season, when Michael Finley did it, Dirk Nowitzki didn’t lead the Mavericks in win shares. As Nowitzki missed a large of the 2012-13 season due to injury, Vince Carter, Darren Collison and Shawn Marion passed him in the all-in-one stat. If the Mavericks have their way, Nowitzki won’t…

  14. Dallas Mavericks point guard Darren Collison wants to stick around long term

    Feb 15, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Mavericks guard Collison drives past Thunder guard Westbrook in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Darren Collison has not had an easy season. He was benched for Derek Fisher earlier in the year, despite the fact Fisher couldn’t actually move on the court. He’s been yanked off the court for guys like Mike James, and he’s survived the Roddy Beaubois experience. At no point has it looked like the Mavericks…

  15. Report: Mavericks interested in Brandon Jennings. If Bucks move him.

    Feb 13, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The Milwaukee Bucks have tested the trade waters for Brandon Jennings — he’s a restricted free agent this summer they think is going to potentially get offers larger than they want to match. So do you trade him now and get something for him? The Bucks will listen. The Mavericks are interested if Milwaukee is…

    Vince Carter taught Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes a bit of a lesson as the first half came to an end at Oracle Arena on Thursday, and we’re all a little better off because of it. With the Mavericks playing for the last shot of the half as point guard Darren Collison dribbled down the clock…

    Okay, this is the last of the 2012 retrospective videos… probably. It’s a fun compilation from NBA.com and includes some big stars, although I’m not sure it’s fair to put Kobe Bryant on there because he probably practiced that shot 500 times one summer. Not sure I would have had Darren Collison on top, I…

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Carlisle reacts to call from officials NBA basketball game against Boston Celtics in Boston

    Dallas has lost six in a row and nine of their last 10 now. It hasn’t been pretty, especially the two losses to the Spurs where Dallas was barely even a threat. Coach Rick Carlisle is frustrated — frustrated with the effort level of his team. Frustrated with the professionalism. And he threatened his players…

    O.J. Mayo

    After suffering an extremely tough overtime loss at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday, the Mavericks find themselves in the midst of a season-high four-game losing streak. A look at O.J. Mayo‘s production drop-off during that stretch will show you the precise reason why. Mayo was a huge bright spot for Dallas…

    Thunder forward Durant reacts after a three point shot against the Atlanta Hawks in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    There is a lot of masked, subtle brilliance to what Kevin Durant does. It’s almost like drinking a fine wine — you have to know what flavors you’re looking for to appreciate it fully. Durant had one particular sequence against the Dallas Mavericks yesterday that embodies that. His block on Darren Collison wasn’t just a…
