NEW YORK (AP) -- Jason Collins' second stint with the Brooklyn Nets will last at least 10 more days.

The Nets signed Collins to a second 10-day contract on Wednesday, and he will be in uniform when they host the Memphis Grizzlies.

Collins became the NBA's first openly gay player when he signed his first deal on Feb. 23. Teams can sign players to two 10-day contracts, and then have to sign them for the rest of the season if they want to keep them.

Collins has appeared in all five games since his return, with three points and five rebounds in 36 minutes. The 13-year veteran also played for the Nets from 2001-08.
