NBA Role: change of pace PG • Star UnderDOG

A former UCLA standout with Mach 5 acceleration, Darren Collison’s a true speed racer in the open floor; DC is one of the quickest guards around: straight-up, blow by guy – 1st step is a tremendous advantage; more natural as a ‘third’ guard? – the new Bobby Jackson in SAC?; creates trouble in the lane: nice floater, always looking to attack; patented, push 3-pointer is one of Collison’s signature shots; normally plays the role of ‘super sub’ – started in 2016-17; Dave Joerger should let Collison loose – crank up the pace, cater to athletes like Willie Cauley-Stein & set up some easy points; has a lot of work ahead to repair his reputation on & off the court – is SAC a long-term fit?

Signature Move: blow by, driving floater
