NBA Rumors: Brooklyn Nets likely to sign Jason Collins for rest of season


The Brooklyn Nets were in need of size, so they brought in Jason Collins.

Now the big man is expected to stick with the team for the remainder of the season, this according to the New York Post.

Collins was signed to a 10-day contract, but with that deal set to expire in the coming days, the team will likely offer him a deal for the rest of the year.

Collins’ 10-day contract expires early next week, but the Nets are all but certain to keep him for the rest of the season.

The Nets could opt to offer Collins another 10-day contract, but would not be able to offer him anymore beyond that.

Doing so would make little sense if the team does intend to keep him for the rest of the year as the Post believes.

Collins has played in two games for the Nets since signing, logging 10:37 in his first game against the Los Angeles Lakers and 7:02 against the Portland Trail Blazers.

He is yet to score a basket though has secured two rebounds, a steal and five fouls.
