Kings’ Darren Collison Suspended Eight Games


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.
