Collins joined the Nets late last month and became the first openly gay active player in one of North America's four major team sports when he took the floor for a Feb. 23 game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The 35-year-old veteran revealed his sexuality nearly 10 months ago in an article he co-wrote for Sports Illustrated.
Collins has appeared in five games this season and has compiled three points with five rebounds in 36 minutes.
The 7-footer previously played for the New Jersey Nets from 2001-08 and was a member of two NBA Finals teams. The Stanford product has averaged 3.6 points and 3.7 rebounds in 718 career games.
