Hornets Sign Free Agent Roger Mason Jr.

According to sources the Hornets have reached an agreement with free agent Roger Mason Jr.

Mason, 31 years old, is a league veteran and will bring some much needed experience to this young Hornets team. Mason has played for more than a few teams in his NBA career, his last was the Washington Wizards. He averaged 5.5 points per game last season in Washington. Mason is a capable shooter and can hit clutch threes at times.

I’m not sure how much playing time Mason will get in New Orleans, as the Hornets have Eric Gordon, Austin Rivers, and Xavier Henry. Mason is a good pickup for the league minimum but I do not see him making a impact on the Hornets season. His role will most likely be to mentor the younger guys such as Austin Rivers and Xavier Henry.
