Matt Leinart struggled in his debut for the quarterback-depleted Buffalo Bills, who closed the preseason with a 35-13 loss to the Detroit Lions on Thursday night at Orchard Park, N.Y. Looking like someone who had had only three days of practice, the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner was three for 10 for 11 yards and two interceptions before being yanked after five possessions. That represents a major concern for Buffalo, which scrambled to sign the 2006 first-round draft pick Sunday after losing its top two quarterbacks to injury.

The Clippers completed an impressive week of deals by getting the backup point guard they needed. Free-agent guard Darren Collison and the Clippers verbally agreed to a two-year deal on Saturday, said NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Collison will get the rest of the mid-level exception the Clippers had left over after giving a portion of it to Matt Barnes. Collison's salary for the 2013-14 season will be $1.9 million. He'll have an opt-out clause he could exercise after the season.

1. Doc Rivers has already proved to be worth giving up that draft pick. Paul got his coach, and the Clippers got their franchise player. It's that simple. So what if the first-round draft pick the Clippers must surrender in 2015 turns out to be a good player? The Clippers could have made their first trip to the Finals by then. And that pick could be playing for the last-place Celtics. 2. Clippers executives can celebrate for five minutes and then it's back to work. Paul's return to the Clippers has been a done deal for some time now, so let's not go overboard with the parties.

The Clippers and Boston Celtics have renewed talks Wednesday again to try and broker a deal for Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett to come to Los Angeles, said league officials who were not authorized to speak publicly on the situation. The deal had broken down several times because the Celtics had requested DeAndre Jordan and two No. 1 draft picks and the Clippers refused. Boston and the Clippers had agreed that Eric Bledsoe wouldn't be a part of the deal. The Clippers also had been prepared to pay Rivers, who has three years left on his deal for $21 million, $6 million to $7 million per year over five seasons, the officials said.
