According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, the New York Knicks have agreed to a deal with journeyman Roger Mason Jr. It's a one-year contract the tune of $1.4 million
The soon-to-be 30-year-old is a natural shooting guard, and will add depth to the Knicks bench. More importantly, he will be the oldest Knick and will bring a veteran presence to the young team.
Mason has bounced around quite a bit, playing for the Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards, and San Antonio Spurs. He also did a stint overseas, playing for the Greek team Olympiacos B.C. and for Hapoel Jerusalem B.C. in the Israeli League.
Mason had his best year in 2008-09 with the Spurs, posting career highs in points per game (11.8), assists per game (2.1) and rebounds per game (3.1). His numbers have decreased overall since then, but there is no doubt that he will be able to help the Knicks this coming season.
