Jason Collins worked out this week with the Brooklyn Nets, who are considering signing him to a 10-day contract.

If brought on to fill one of two open roster spots, Collins would become the NBA's first active openly gay player.

ESPN.com reported that that the Nets are interested in Collins to help bolster a depleted frontcourt rotation and that Collins worked out with the team in a private audition in Los Angeles.

“He's in shape,” Nets General Manager Billy King said of the 35-year-old Collins.

“He's one of the names on the list,” King added. “We will look at anybody that's a free agent that's big that's out there. We're looking at any guys that are free agents and he's one of the guys. But we've got other guys that we'll look at.”

Collins announced he's gay in a Sports Illustrated cover last year.
