Wojnarowski notes that nothing is imminent between either team. The Kings are pretty happy with how Darren Collison has performed so far this season, and his 15.6 points per game and 6.1 assists basically match the production given by the older, slower Deron Williams this year (15.6 points and 6.8 assists). Collison is also shooting better from the field (43.4% to 40.3%) and more importantly is only being paid about $5 million a year for the next two seasons, while Williams is set to make $21 million in 2015 and has a early termination option for 2016 worth $22.3 million.
Plumlee is a very long, athletic center who can play above the rim, rebound and block shots. He's also in the second year of a four year rookie contract, making him a valuable commodity. Brooklyn is wise to try to hold on to him, and the Kings are wise to try to pry him from the Nets. I don't see either team bending on this issue, which makes a deal unlikely.
