There is growing sentiment within the Brooklyn Nets’ organization to move quickly to sign Jason Collins to a 10-day contract if they are spurned by free agent-to-be Glen Davis, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Nets — who have made Davis their top frontcourt target — still intend to make a signing soon if they can’t convince Davis to choose them over the Los Angeles Clippers.
The teams in the hunt for Davis, sources said, expect a decision Sunday. The league office, meanwhile, has confirmed to ESPN that Davis will officially become an unrestricted free agent Sunday at 5 p.m. ET if, as expected, he is not claimed off waivers by another team.
