Veteran guard Darren Collison has decided that he won’t return to the NBA this season and plans to stay retired, league sources tell ESPN. Lakers and Clippers had been courting him, but Collison has informed teams that the timing isn’t right for him.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 9, 2020
Collison last played for the Indiana Pacers during the 2018-19 season, when he averaged 11.2 points and 6.0 assists, appearing in 76 games. The former first-round pick out of UCLA averaged 12.5 points and 5.0 assists per game over the course of his 10-year career and could certainly be a strong addition to any roster. But for now, he’ll remain an outsider.
