The Kings are reportedly "comfortable" with Darren Collison as their starting point guard next season.
This started to become clear after a report from the Sacramento Bee indicated that the Kings don't intend to re-sign Rajon Rondo. Collison played well last season with averages of 14.0 points, 4.3 assists, 2.3 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers, but his fantasy value would get a significant boost with Rondo moving on. To be clear, Collison is still facing two misdemeanor domestic violence charges and the NBA could discipline him as well. Additionally, the Kings are expected to pursue another backup PG which would be bad news for rookie Isaiah Cousins. Jul 3 - 12:41 PM

Kings PG Darren Collison was arrested on a felony domestic violence charge.

According to CBS Sacramento, Collison was booked into Placer County Jail on one count of inflicting corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant and a bench warrant of driving while his license was revoked. Details are still coming out, but the Kings have already released a statement on the arrest: "We’ve been made aware of the situation. The Sacramento Kings condemn violence of any kind. We are gathering additional information and once all facts are known we will take appropriate steps." If convicted, Collison faces up to four years in prison and $6,000 in fines.

According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Knicks have interest in Darren Collison and Jeff Teague.

It's no secret that the Knicks will try to upgrade their backcourt this summer, but both Collison and Teague are under contract with their current teams through the 2016-17 season. The Knicks don't have many assets to use in trade talks, so a deal seems very unlikely. There are some free agent point guards that the Knicks could pursue this summer as well, including Mike Conley, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Jennings.

Darren Collison (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

With DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo also unavailable for Wednesday's game, Seth Curry will get all the run he can handle, and he figures to be a focal point of the Sacramento offense. It would be unwise to not target Curry in DFS on Wednesday night.
Apr 12 - 3:47 PM

Darren Collison (rest) will not play against the Suns on Monday.

It's an important game for a loss, so the Kings will rest Collison, Rajon Rondo and DeMarcus Cousins. With Collison out, Seth Curry should get all he can handle in a favorable matchup. He's basically a must-use player in DFS and should be owned in all leagues.

Apr 11 - 4:26 PM

Darren Collison scored 27 points to lead the Kings to a 114-112 win over the Thunder on Saturday.

He drew another start in place of Rajon Rondo (rest) and didn't disappoint, adding eight assists, five boards, one steal and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes. Rondo may not even play in the Kings' final two games of the season since they're tanking, so it's possible that Collison could have two more starts coming his way. Keep in mind that Collison could get a night off as well, as the Kings rested him earlier in the week without a warning.
Apr 10 - 1:48 AM

Darren Collison will start on Saturday vs. the Thunder.

Rajon Rondo is going to rest again, so Collison will see all the minutes he can handle and will likely be a popular play in DFS tonight. Make sure he's in all active lineups. He scored 19 points with two rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes in his previous outing.
Apr 9 - 9:32 PM

Darren Collison scored 19 points during a 105-97 loss to the Wolves on Thursday with two rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Rajon Rondo did not play in this game for rest and he's probably not going to play in at least one more game. Although, the Kings might want him to give it a go in their last home game at Sleep Train Arena on Saturday, so Collison will likely log most of his minutes at shooting guard against the Thunder.
Apr 8 - 12:34 AM

Darren Collison is starting on Thursday against the Wolves.

Expect him to be very busy as a must-start play in DFS.
Apr 7 - 9:27 PM

Darren Collison (rest) is a late scratch for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers.

The Kings are acting shady lately because they are tanking so that they can to keep their top-10 protected draft pick. Collison should be back for Thursday's game vs. the Wolves. Rajon Rondo and Seth Curry are going to be busy tonight.
Apr 5 - 10:07 PM

Darren Collison scored 14 points with eight assists and four boards in a start at point guard on Saturday vs. the Nuggets.

He finished just 4-of-13 from the field and had three turnovers, but he's basically a must-start option every time that Rajon Rondo (rest) sits. The Kings are tanking and Rondo is expected to miss at least two out of the Kings' five remaining games, so Collison should have a strong finish to the season.
Apr 2 - 11:53 PM

Darren Collison scored 26 points during a 112-106 loss to the Heat on Friday with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

Collison did have hard fall and hurt his knee, but he's fine. He almost led a tremendous comeback with a huge fourth quarter. Collison will be moving into the starting lineup on Saturday at point guard and he should get some heavy burn in a favorable matchup. He'll be one of the most popular players in DFS for Saturday and is a no-brainer, must-start option in season-long leagues.
Apr 2 - 1:19 AM

Darren Collison started at point guard on Monday vs. the Blazers but was pretty quiet, scoring 10 points with seven assists, two boards, three steals and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

The Kings were blown out tonight, but Collison's owners were expecting more from him. He shot just 5-of-13 from the field and didn't even attempt a 3-pointer. Rajon Rondo could get some more maintenance days and Collison was already worth owning before tonight, so expect him to be a lot better vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.
Mar 29 - 12:31 AM

Darren Collison, Seth Curry, Omri Casspi, Quincy Acy and Kosta Koufos will start on Monday vs. Portland.

The Kings are resting Rajon Rondo, Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins tonight. Collison is healthy, so he could approach 40 minutes tonight and is a must-start player in all leagues.
