Is Money Mase Coming Back To DC?

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Wednesday, December 7, 2011

According to the Washington Examiner the Washington Wizards are looking at signing former Wizard (and former guy who destroyed me in high school) Roger Mason to a 1 year contract. It is going to be great to see him in a Wizards uniform again instead of in a Vest and tie at Lockout meetings standing next to Lumberjack Baron Davis at the podium.

Mason came on strong for the 2007-08 Wizards averaging 9 points and over 20 minutes per game. The next season he moved on to San Antonio where he played 82 games and had a few great game winning shots. His scoring went up to almost 12 points per game and he played a career high 30+ minutes per game. For some time he was even starting for the playoff bound Spurs.

Mason's minutes and scoring dropped in the following season and last year Roger only played in 29 games for the New York Knicks, most of them coming during the final month of the season. Now Mason is back in DC, and about to sign with the Wizards once again.

This would be a good pickup for the Wiz. Mason is a great 3 point shooter and could keep the defenders honest while John Wall drives to the hoop. He is also a solid veteran with plenty of playoff experience. As the other Mase would say, "feels so good"...
