Jason Collins will sign with the Brooklyn Nets for the remainder of the season on Saturday, according to sources.

Collins' second 10-day contract will expire on Friday. Collins has averaged 9.8 minutes per game in eight appearances with the Nets this season.

Collins has focused on basketball despite attention surrounding him playing as the first openly gay athlete in North America's four recognized major team sports.

"I'm just trying to be Jason Collins," Collins said recently. "What Jackie Robinson did for the sport of baseball and our society [is] tremendous. But I am just trying to be Jason Collins."
