Jason Collins, the NBA's first openly gay player, is not sure he'll return to the NBA next season.

In signing with the Brooklyn Nets in March, Collins, who came out gay on the cover of Sports Illustrated last year, became the NBA's first active openly gay player.

But the 35-year-old isn't sure he'll return to the game next year.

“I go back and forth on what my next steps will be,” Collins told Gay Star News.

Collins said he'll decide next month whether to resume training.

“I still run,” he said. “I don't want to turn into Charles Barkley.”

Collins, who attended Wimbledon, was named to the president's Council on Fitness and Nutrition and appeared at numerous Gay Pride festivals and events this summer, said he was looking forward to attending the U.S. Open in New York and attending other various events.

He added that with a packed schedule he's been “enjoying this summer.”
