Roger Mason Jr., a basketball player who had a small role on the New Orleans Pelicans’ squad last season, might get a chance to play with the Miami Heat next season.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, the Heat invited Mason to training camp and could possibly add him to one of the two final spots on their roster.
Mason, 33, hit 45.5 percent from behind the three-point line last season and, could potentially become another reliable shooter on a team that no longer has Mike Miller.
The last winning team Mason played with was the New York Knicks in 2010-2011, but he was only on the floor for 26 games. His best NBA years came while playing for the San Antonio Spurs for a couple of seasons, including being a starter for the team, averaging 11.8 points per game in the 2008-2009 season.
This deal would work for both parties, Mason is a guy who can contribute within the very small role that’s given to him, and he won’t mind taking a minimum salary for his contribution.
