Mason Plumlee denied allegations that his ties to Nike and Duke influenced the decision to include him on the final 12-man Team USA roster.
"I’m very proud that I went to Duke and I’m very proud that I wear Nike, and that has nothing to do with it," Plumlee said. "If you were at our practices and our training camp, anybody that was there, they would see why I made the team." Plumlee is significantly less talented than his teammates on the US squad, and that has prompted some conspiracy theory-like questions. However, he plays a marginal role for the team (just 16 total minutes over the first two games) and he does provide some needed size. Choose what you want to believe, but if Team USA comes home with anything less than a gold medal, coach Mike Krzyzewski will likely be scrutinized for his roster decisions. Sep 1 - 5:10 PM

Mason Plumlee will represent Team USA for the FIBA World Cup.

If you made a list of the best 100 players in the NBA right now, Plumlee probably wouldn't be on it. He didn't make a single shot outside of the paint last season and he can't really put the ball on the floor in the low post, but coach Mike Krzyzewski likes him. He's still not worth drafting in standard leagues while Brook Lopez (foot) is healthy.

Mason Plumlee is expected to make Team USA, according to ESPN.com.

He's a coach Mike Krzyzewski favorite since his Duke days and the national team needs a big man. The injury to DeMarcus Cousins doesn't seem to be a factor here and Plumlee would have made the team anyway. While he has no semblance of a game beyond five feet on offense, Team USA could always use a big guy around the rim. He's the only player on Team USA who isn't worth drafting in standard leagues.

Mason Plumlee is competing with DeMarcus Cousins and Andre Drummond for Team USA's backup center spot.

With the final cut for the World Cup of Basketball coming as soon as Thursday, the backup center spot will seemingly come down to Plumlee and Cousins. However, head coach Mike Krzyzewski attempted to diffuse the speculation that stemmed from Drummond not leaving the bench during Friday's exhibition against Brazil. "We haven't picked the team yet. People read into everything," Krzyzewski said. "That's part of the world we live in."

Mason Plumlee said he wants to start for the Nets next season.

"Oh yeah," Plumlee said when asked if he wanted to start. "What player doesn't want to start?" He has a chance to make Team USA and he's coming off a great finish to his 2013-14 season, but it would be hard to see him starting over a healthy Brook Lopez. Plumlee didn't make a single shot outside of the paint last season, so he's obviously not an option at power forward. He's not an option in most fantasy leagues.

Mason Plumlee has been promoted to the Team USA National Team.

He was part of the Select Team but a lack of big men prompted executive director Jerry Colangelo to let him compete for one of Team USA's 12 roster spots. It's doubtful that he'll make the cut, but it's a testament to Plumlee's skills and rising profile in the NBA. He's poised to have a solid season in Brooklyn, especially if Brook Lopez is limited by his surgically-repaired feet.
Jul 29 - 6:49 PM

Mason Plumlee has been named to the USA Select team.

This is a huge honor for the 24-year-old as he attempts to build off his strong Summer League showing. Plumlee will join his brother, Mason, and 10 other young players who will help prepare Team USA for this summer's World Cup of Basketball. Plumlee will open the 2014-15 season backing up Brook Lopez, but should be able to carve out a role for himself in the Nets' rotation and provide fantasy value to owners in deeper leagues.

Mason Plumlee (sore left foot) will not play against the Sixers on Wednesday.

He has been outstanding in Orlando so far and there was no major sign of an injury prior to today. Plumlee is likely going to earn a role in the rotation, but his playing time figures to be sparse while Brook Lopez (foot) is healthy.
Jul 9 - 5:17 PM

Mason Plumlee made 8-of-11 from the field for 23 points vs. the Pacers on Saturday, adding seven boards, one assist and three steals.

He continues to thrive around the basket and looked great today. Plumlee's rookie season went well down the stretch and he'll look to back up Brook Lopez next season. He won't be on the radar in standard leagues off the bat, but playing time could open up for him.
Jul 5 - 11:32 AM

Mason Plumlee will headline the Nets' summer league roster this month.

He'll be joined by the three rookies, Marquis Teague and Jorge Gutierrez. Cory Jefferson, Xavier Thames and Markel Brown could all see minutes, but Plumlee may be the most interesting player to watch after really improving down the stretch last season.
Jul 1 - 10:56 AM

Mason Plumlee was named to the All-Rookie First Team on Thursday.

He filled in admirably for an injured Brook Lopez and an aging Kevin Garnett during the regular season, averaging 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds. Unfortunately for Brooklyn, his production in the playoffs plummeted down to 2.2 points in just 11 minutes of action. Despite his postseason failures, he proved that he can perform at the NBA level and has promise as a late-round add in fantasy drafts.
May 22 - 2:33 PM

Mason Plumlee hit 7-of-9 shots for 16 points and nine rebounds in 30 minutes on Tuesday.

He's made a name for himself over the past 30 games and should have another nice one on Wednesday, with or without the regular starters playing for Jason Kidd.
Apr 15 - 11:33 PM

Mason Plumlee hit all six of his field goal attempts on Friday, scoring 17 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes off the bench.

Plumlee is cruising right now with averages of 14.3 points, 6.0 boards, 1.5 combined steals and blocks, and 83.3 percent field goal shooting over his last four games. He's averaging 27.4 minutes in that span and it wouldn't be surprising if he keeps it up while the Nets rest their older players. Those numbers are good enough for mid-round value and owners needing a big man should pick him up.
Apr 11 - 11:30 PM

Mason Plumlee blocked LeBron James shot near the end of the game as the Nets held on for an 88-87 win over the Heat to complete a four-game season sweep of the champs.

Plumlee had eight points, eight rebounds, a steal and three blocks, although the one he had on LeBron to save the game certainly could have been called a foul. Plumlee will likely move back to the bench for his next game, as Kevin Garnett is expected to start after sitting this one out.
Apr 8 - 10:56 PM

With Kevin Garnett out on Tuesday, Mason Plumlee will start against the Heat.

Plumlee had 16 points and seven rebounds off the bench on Saturday, and could be a sneaky fantasy play tonight.
