With free-agent-to-be forward Glen Davis telling the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday that he intends to sign with them after he clears waivers at 5 p.m. Eastern, Collins appears to be next in line as a roster addition for the Brooklyn Nets. The 35-year-old announced his homosexuality by way of Sports Illustrated nearly 10 months ago, and thus became known as the first openly-gay NBA player.
