NEW YORK — The Brooklyn Nets will sign center Jason Collins to a second 10-day contract Wednesday, sources confirmed on Monday.

Collins’ 10-day contract expires on Tuesday and the team will sign him to a second deal, as first reported by Yahoo! Sports. The expectation is that Collins will remain with the team and sign for the season after the second 10-day contract expires, barring unforeseen circumstances.

On Monday night against the Chicago Bulls, Collins played his first home game since signing with the Nets on Feb. 23.

Late in the Nets’ 96-80 victory over the Bulls, the Barclays Center crowd began chanting “Jason Collins! Jason Collins!” Collins entered the game with 2:41 left and received a quick standing ovation before play resumed. He finished with a rebound, a steal and a foul, missing his only field goal attempt.

“It was cool,” Collins said of the support. “It was a lot of fun going into the game, but the most important thing was that we got the win.”
