NEW YORK (AP) — A person with knowledge of the situation says the Brooklyn Nets will sign Jason Collins to a second 10-day contract.

Collins signed his original deal on Feb. 23, becoming the NBA's first openly gay player, and it expires Tuesday.

The Nets then will re-sign him for another 10 days on Wednesday, the person tells The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the plans haven't been made public.

After that, the Nets would have to sign him for the rest of the season if they wanted to keep him.

Collins says before the Nets' game against Chicago on Monday that he wasn't aware of any deal, leaving those details up to his agent.
