   The best of what's left
2010-07-30

Roger Mason - Roger Mason shot only 33% from three last year, and 39% overall. With only 34 free throws taken all year, Mason's true shooting percentage was .490%, and that's just not very good. That said, the three point percentage was a blip. Sometimes, shooters can't shoot for a season. Check out Casey Jacobsen's season in Memphis, for example. The days of Mason the slasher are pretty much over, and have been since he left Israel, as are the days of Mason the occasional point guard defender. But Mason can still shoot, last year excepted. And he's good enough of a defender.

Incidentally, there exists a decent possibility that in the next week, the Bulls will hire Rick Brunson as an assistant coach and sign Roger Mason as a player. This is noteworthy for the fact that Chicago, under Paxson's regime, once traded Mason for Brunson. A minor mistake.

   Chicago's Last Resort Offseason Plan That Still Manages To Avoid Signing Joe Johnson
2010-06-14

[...] That leaves a market with few shooters on it. And those that are good shooters are either unsuitable or unavailable. Mike Miller's days of being able to defend opposing guards are pretty much over. Kyle Korver can't really do it either. I wouldn't want Quentin Richardson to attempt it. Anthony Morrow is desirable, but is not easy to get. J.J. Redick is also desirable, but he's restricted, and owned by a team who has spent extremely generously in the last two years. Roger Mason is OK, but he's no starter. And then there's Ray Allen, who, while an absolutely perfect fit for Chicago's roster, is setting records for Boston in the NBA Finals. He should be considered unavailable until further notice.

   Deadline looms for these unguaranteed players
2014-01-03

Miami - Michael Beasley and Roger Mason: The rejuvenated Beasley averages 10.7 points in only 18 minutes per contest and will not be cut. And while Mason is the logic cut to open up a roster spot should Miami see fit to do so - for someone like, say, Bynum - he is sufficiently capable in his role of low mistake three point shooter to merit sticking on his play alone.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
