Collison as a free agent

Darren Collison will be a restricted free agent this offseason and has been making a great case this season for a decent payday. He has started the 24 games the Dallas Mavericks have played since Christmas and has averaged 14.2 points and 6.0 assists over that stretch. He also has shot better than 50 percent from the field over the past two and half months and has bumped his assists up to 7.3 per game in six games this month.
