Will Jason Collins remain with the Nets for the rest of the season?

Jeff Gross

Jason Collins was signed to a 10-day contract on Sunday, making his season debut with the Nets against the Lakers. His contract will expire on Wednesday to which the Nets will have to decide whether or not they will offer him up a second 10-day contract, sign him for the remainder of the season or let him walk. After the second 10-day contract, if they do sign him to one, they would then have to decide whether to sign him for the remainder of the season or, again, to let him walk.

Collins has averaged nine minutes over his first two games with the Nets and has yet to score, grabbing two rebounds and picking one steal.

It seems, however, that the Nets are leaning toward signing Collins for the remainder of the season, says Tim Bontemps of the New York Post.

"Game action is game action," Collins said afterward. "But tonight, Portland attacked from the start, and it was hard to try to get back into the game."

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

Collins played in "garbage time" in a blowout loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. It's worth noting, however, that Kevin Garnett did play and that Collins was signed as an extra big for those nights when Garnett does not play. The Nets are on night two of a back-to-back set tonight when they take on the Denver Nuggets.
