Here’s the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on a player you probably don’t know a lot about:

Diante Garrett will finally get to play in a “homecoming” game.

Last season the former Milwaukee Vincent star was in the BMO Harris Bradley Center as a member of the Phoenix Suns but did not play against the Bucks.

He returns Monday night as a member of the Utah Jazz and this time as a solid member of the team’s rotation, playing a backup point guard role to rookie Trey Burke.

And his father, Dick, and plenty of friends and family will be cheering him on as the Jazz plays the third game in a six-game, nine-day road trip. Dick normally works the Bucks home games as an usher but is getting the night off to watch his son play.

Nets likely keeping Jason Collins

Here’s the New York Daily News reporting on center Jason Collins, who will apparently stick with the Nets for at least another 10 days:

Jason Collins will have at least another 10 days to continue his trailblazing tour.

Sources confirmed the Nets plan to re-sign Collins, the first openly gay player in the NBA, to a 10-day contract after his current one expires Tuesday.

After that 10-day deal, which would start Wednesday, Brooklyn will have to decide whether to cut him or sign him for the remainder of the season. Collins, meanwhile, said he was oblivious to any agreement.
