What Next for Jason Collins?
The Associated Press
Undated- NBA players, coaches and executives have responded positively to Jason Collins' coming out announcement.
Now, the player needs a job. His announcement that he's gay was after his season with the Washington Wizards had ended. The 34-year-old becomes a free agent on July 1, meaning that he'll first have to sign with an NBA team and wait until next season to see if teammates, coaches, opponents and fans will treat him any differently.
Collins only played in 38 games last season, his 12th year in the NBA, with averages of 1.1 points, 1.6 rebounds and 10.1 minutes per game for Boston and Washington.
