NBA Free Agency: Cleveland Cavaliers interested in Darren Collison

The Cavaliers are interested in point guard Darren Collison, according to Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio.

With the obvious need for a backup point guard behind Kyrie Irving, an interest in Collison makes a lot of sense. Collison is a 25 year-old that has been in the NBA for four seasons. He's been with three teams, including the Mavericks last season, where he started 47 games. Averaging 12.0 points and 5.1 assists per game on 47% shooting, Collison would seem to be an excellent pick up as a backup guard getting around 25 minutes per game. He's also a career 36% three-point shooter who can stretch the floor a little, which is something the Cavs continue to need.

He is a little bit on the small side at around 6'0", meaning he's pretty much stuck to playing point guard at all times. Having said that, Collison is pretty much the prototypical offensive floor general that you want as a backup point guard in the NBA. Assuming the price is around $4 million or so per season, I'm in favor of something like this.
