The Los Angeles Clippers backcourt rotation is endless. Darren Collison is the perfect addition to an already deep squad and will provide valuable minutes on a contract that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.

 Collison was signed to a 2 year, 3.8 million dollar deal with the second year on player option, meaning as long as the UCLA product does not get injured or outplay his contract next year, the Clippers could see a very happy two years with the backup point guard.

Collison averaged 12 points, 5.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 29.3 minutes a game during his tenure with the Dallas Mavericks. He shoots a very respectable 47.1 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from beyond the arc.

With the loss of Eric Bledsoe this offseason, the Clippers needed to add someone who could back up Chris Paul, and Collison will be the right man for the job.
