Sacramento Kings guard Darren Collison will be suspended without pay for the first eight games of the 2016-17 NBA regular season after his recent guilty plea on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery.
Collison will be allowed to participate in Kings exhibition games and practices but will miss Sacramento’s opening eight games after he received three years of informal probation and a 20-day jail sentence for a May incident involving his wife at their home in the Sacramento suburb of Granite Bay, California. The suspension will cost Collison a total of $380,324 in lost salary.

Sources: Clippers Prepared to Offer Tobias Harris, 12th or 13th Pick for Kawhi Leonard
It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.
The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
