Jason Collins seeking book deal, officials tell AP

Jason Collins, the NBA veteran who recently announced he was gay, is seeking a book deal, The Associated Press has learned. 

Officials at three publishing houses said Monday that they had been contacted about a planned memoir by Collins, the first active player in any of four major U.S. professional sports leagues to come out as gay. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the proceedings. 

The officials said Collins was being represented by Kristine Dahl of International Creative Management. Dahl did not immediately respond to phone and email messages left by the AP. 

At least one publisher turned down the book, said one official, who noted the extensive media coverage of Collins and expressed concern that his story already has been told.
