Brooklyn Nets sign Jason Collins for remainder of season

After giving him a pair of 10-day contracts, the Brooklyn Nets have officially signed center Jason Collins for the remainder of the season.

Collins initially signed a 10-day contract with the team on February 23. He then signed a second one, which expired at midnight on Friday, on March 5.

According to head coach Jason Kidd, younger players like Mason Plumlee benefit from having Collins around:

“He’s been to the Finals twice. He understands that time of year.

 

“[Collins] and [Garnett] can help Mason understand a lot of different things on how to get better. [Collins] can help him understand what it means to foul. There’s a technique I guess in that. But I think it was a good signing all around and I think it helps Mason.”

Collins has played in eight games since joining the Nets, logging 78 minutes of playing time. He’s recorded five points, six rebounds, and six steals.
