Report: Darren Collison to stay retired, leaving the Lakers looking for answers

A courtside overture is a strong message to any potential free agent, but it was not enough to pull Darren Collison out of retirement. ESPN was first to report that the 32-year-old veteran point guard will not return to the league, despite very public flirtations between him and the Lakers. Collison, a Rancho Cucamonga native and former standout at UCLA had been rumored to have been mulling a comeback for more than a month. The Clippers and Lakers were considered front-runners to add him, hoping...

The Lakers look within for improvement after trade deadline passes

LOS ANGELES — For all the talk, the spinning blades of the rumor mill that capture the attention of the NBA for weeks on end, within the Lakers’ walls, there seemed to be at least some sense of stability. In the days before Thursday’s trade deadline, players and coaches alike skirted past the possibility that the roster would be shaken up. Anthony Davis and Danny Green suggested specifically that they expected Kyle Kuzma, the subject of the most rampant speculation, would be staying on. As the d...

After standing pat at trade deadline, Lakers reportedly to workout J.R. Smith, watch Collison

Marcus Morris also got traded, but to the Clippers team just down the Staples Center hall. The Los Angeles Lakers stood pat at the trade deadline — in part because they did not want to meet the Knicks' asking price for Morris — and now will be looking to the buyout market and the possible return of Darren Collison, to add playmaking and shooting to the roster for a playoff run.

Darren Collison reportedly to announce decision on return after All-Star break

Darren Collison reportedly considering return to NBA, looking at Lakers, Clippers

Collison could help either Los Angeles team, both are looking for additional point guard depth (and both can only offer a veteran's minimum contract). The Lakers use LeBron James at the point and have Rajon Rondo off the bench, but they are looking for another playmaker to help during the playoffs. The Clippers have the defensive mindset of Patrick Beverley starting, and they bring the scoring of Lou Williams off the bench, but they have been looking for depth at the position and someone wh...
