Warriors Want Collison If They Lose Jack?
If the Warriors lose point guard Jarrett Jack, a couple sources said Darren Collison is on the list of possible replacements. The former New Orleans Hornets stud has been on the decline the last few years with Indiana and Dallas. But he’s still considered a formidable back-up guard and has some of the skills the Warriors would be losing in Jack.
The one hurdle: Golden State may only have the mini mid-level exception to offer. Technically, Golden State is over the tax because of the cap holds, so they can offer the taxpayer’s midlevel, which is more than the bi-annual exception. That means they can do a maximum three-year deal starting at $3.18 million. With maximum 4.5 percent raises, the Warriors can offer Collison (or any free agent) up to three years, $9.97 million.
