The Brooklyn Nets likely will re-sign center Jason Collins for the remainder of the season, according to a New York Post report.
Collins’ 10-day contract expires next week. The Nets signed him last week as the first openly gay athlete in one of the four major North American professional sports leagues.
The seven-footer has played in two games since he signed and has one rebound and no points. He was on the floor for seven minutes in a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday and played 11 minutes in a win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
