Poll: Which NBA team will sign Jason Collins?

New, 5 comments

NBA free agency begins Monday, and there are several potential landing spots

Bruce Bennett

With NBA free agency opening Monday, July 1, it may not be too long before we find out the new home for the NBA's first openly gay active player. There are plenty of contenders.

This week, the Brooklyn Nets reportedly expressed interest in signing Collins; He played there for seven years and also played with several of the players in Boston and Atlanta.

As the Boston Celtics rebuild, could the team be looking for a veteran to help take up the middle of the lane?

Doc Rivers has long been on the record as supporting LGBT athletes. He had nothing but great things to say about John Amaechi years ago, and could potentially use a familiar face now that he's the new head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers. Given Collins' residence of Southern California, could that putt he Clippers or the Lakers in contention?

Or will the last team to have him -- the Washington Wizards, who saw jersey sales skyrocket when Collins came out -- be the one to resign him?
