    The Detroit Pistons have expressed exploratory interest in signing free-agent center Jason Collins, according to sources close to the process. Collins, 34, was a first-round pick in 2001 after spending four years at Stanford. One guaranteed contract shy of the league's limit of 15, Detroit is said to be intrigued by the veteran know-how Collins possesses and views him as a potential insurance signing in support of its two blossoming big men: Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond. His career has included stops with the Nets, Grizzlies, Timberwolves, Hawks, Celtics and Wizards, and the 7-footer, known for his low-post defense and unselfish play, holds career averages of 3.6 points and 3.8 rebounds.
