The Brooklyn Nets are interested in signing Jason Collins.

Collins became the first openly gay NBA player this offseason.

Collins, who has close ties with Jason Kidd and Lawrence Frank, would presumably sign for the veteran's minimum.

Collins played with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce with the Boston Celtics last season before being traded to the Washington Wizards. Garnett was frustrated when Collins was traded.

Tim Bontemps of the New York Post reports that the Nets are uninterested in Collins.
