PG prospects - Collison

Collison?  Let's assume Allen can't pull off the miraculous and pick up CP3 on the cheap (and that CP3 would somehow elect for PDX rather than the usual suspects), and that no other surprise talents emerge on the market (like Chandler, etc).  If nothing else, it is clear in Blazer Nation that we are divided about the PG position for the present and the future; whereas we are all but settled and delighted with 2-5 - on the assumption they are healthy.  Bayless may be likeable enough, and may be useful in some capacity (6th man?), but few but the most die-hard really think he is a seamless fit with the big 4 (Batum being the 4th).   What about Darren Collison?  Brings speed and major defense, with the ability to guard or even lockdown most teams' 1 and sometime 2 - and the kid can make himself opportunities and get in the scorebook while being all about team, and deferring to the shotmakers.  He can runaround and save Broy the legs we now know don't need to accrue more miles.   Another gazelle (with Batum and LMA) could position us with a more dynamic style of play than we're accustomed to with this team and particular coaching ethos.  Can you imagine a first round match-up with the Rockets (that's already a stretch, but go with me) - and the likes of Aaron Brooks causing fear in the hearts of Blazer Nation, with Collison ready to lock him down?  What about Fisher or Tony Parker, or even, and perhaps more significantly, the young PG's on Phoenix and Dallas.  For a while, in these desperate times, I had the notion of acquiring Devon Harris (assuming the Nets would land Wall); I now realize how crazy that is.  Collison on the cheap, with an eye as the starter long term.  It's realistic and perhaps even - sensible.  (Jeez - remember those lost summer days in Hedo-talk and jitters about whatshisface from the jazz?)
