Thunder's Nick Collison has his knee scoped


Nick Collison has found a nice niche as a quality big off the bench in Oklahoma City. He wants to keep it that way.

That’s why early in the offseason — like yesterday — he had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. That’s an almost routine surgery these days and Collison will be good to go come training camp in the fall.

Collison is owed $6.7 million next year in the last year of his current deal. He will be a free agent… just in time for the lockout. Lucky him.
