Former 1st Round Pick Has "Great" Workout For Phoenix Suns

A lot of players are going to come out of the woodwork to try to land a secondary role with the Phoenix Suns, as they need to fill in the gaps around the Big Three of Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal. One of those, who has played only three NBA games since 2019, is Darren Collison. The point guard held a workout for the Suns this past week, and it seems to have gone well. 

According to NBA Insider Chris Haynes, Collison had a "great showing" for the Suns. 

He shocked the NBA world by suddenly retiring "for religious reasons" at the age of 31 after the 2019 season. He was expected to be able to earn a contract in the range of about $10M per year in free agency that summer. He had averaged 11.2 points and 6.0 assists for the Indiana Pacers that season, while shooting 40.7% from distance.

It was Frank Vogel's Lakers who convinced Collison to come out of retirement for three games on a 10-day contract around Christmas in the 2021-22 season. He played about 12 minutes per game. Now Vogel will try to lure him back once again.

For his career, Collison was a lethal shooter from deep, firing threes at a 39.4% clip while averaging 12.5 points and 5.0 assists.
