After giving Jason Collins two separate 10 day contracts, the Brooklyn Nets have decided to sign him for the rest of the season and playoffs. He hasn’t played much but when he has been on the court he has at least been able to be somewhat of a defensive presence and use up all his fouls, which does come in handy. It seems like the buzz about him being gay has finally faded and he is just being looked at as a basketball player.

The Brooklyn Nets have an additional roster spot and have been surveying the market.  One of the available players they’ve shown interest in is Jason Collins.  Collins is now most famously known for coming out as the first active gay player in an interview with Sports Illustrated.  He’s been unemployed and some people think it’s because players can’t handle being around a gay player in close quarters while others think it’ll be too much of a distraction surrounding the team; Nets star Deron Williams seems to be in the latter part of that group.

Reports have surfaced that as early as today, the Brooklyn Nets could sign Jason Collins to a contract. Normally this would not be news since Collins is pretty washed up, but since Collins was the first player in the history of major sports in America to come out and say he is gay, it obviously makes this a bigger deal. The Nets are considering giving him a 10 day contract to see how it goes and to see how he can help them. His game isn’t much at this point, but because of his size, he may be able to fill in for a few minutes here and there to give Kevin Garnett and some of the other front court players some rest. The Nets worked him out a few days ago and said he was in pretty good shape. Collins played for the New Jersey Nets for the first six years of his career. Hit the jump.
