Roger Mason Jr. (back) will not be joining the Pacers' Summer League team in Orlando.
He was going to try and give it a go but a recent back injury will keep him out of action. It's not clear if Mason Jr. will sign on with a team for the 2014-15 season, but even if he does, he is not a fantasy option in any format. Jul 4 - 1:53 PM

33-year-old guard Roger Mason Jr. will reportedly play for the Pacers' Summer League team.

Mason Jr. has bounced around the leagues a lot during his career, spending time with Chicago, Washington, San Antonio, New York, New Orleans, Miami, and Toronto. Mason's greatest asset is his shooting, as he's shot 38.3 percent from beyond the arc throughout his career, and he will attempt to showcase himself this summer as a guy who can still offer something to an NBA team.

Kings waived Roger Mason Jr.

The Kings traded for Mason on Thursday just so they could waive his contract. He's now an unrestricted free agent.

Heat guard Roger Mason has been traded to the Kings and will be waived, according to CBSSports.

Mason will likely become an unrestricted free agent, so we won't know where he'll land for several days. Not that it matters in fantasyland. The Heat are expected to receive a highly-protected second-round pick to complete the deal, but that pick will probably never end up being moved. Can you feel the excitement?

Brian Windhorst is reporting the Heat have been aggressively trying to open a roster spot by trading G Roger Mason, and may have found a buyer.

That's all we know for now, but it does sound like Mason is likely to be dealt today.
Feb 20 - 11:20 AM

Roger Mason Jr. took advantage of extra playing time to score a season-high 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting from downtown vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

The veteran SG logged 23 minutes off the bench. He might have specialist appeal if Dwyane Wade (knees) were ruled out for an extended period of time, but with Wade day-to-day there's no incentive to own Mason Jr. in any leagues.

Roger Mason will start at shooting guard on Wednesday in place of Dwyane Wade (rest).

He was on the inactive list last night and is unlikely to see too many minutes tonight. Mason is more famous for his "how u" mistake on Twitter than his play on the court, so owners in very deep leagues are better using guys like James Jones or Shane Battier as plug-in options.

Roger Mason Jr. has already made Miami's regular season roster, according to Ethan Skolnick of Turner Sports.

Mason is a career 38.4 percent shooter from downtown, and he'll be asked to fill some of the court-spacing duties left vacant when Mike Miller signed with Memphis. It's nice to see the VP of the NBA Players Association make an active roster, but his role isn't conducive to fantasy value.

The Heat are working out free agent guard Roger Mason Jr., who is now the vice president of the player's union.

He appeared in 69 games for the Hornets last year, averaging 5.3 points on 43.3 percent shooting, along with 66 3-pointers on the season. The Heat have 13 players under contract, meaning Mason has a chance to make the team's final roster. And if he does, he'll be nothing more than a 3-point specialist, as usual.

Roger Mason Jr. is the only announced candidate to replace Derek Fisher as president of the NBA Players Association.

The NBPA is still combatting a wrongful-termination lawsuit from former union executive director Billy Hunter, who was fired last season after being accused of nepotism. Mason Jr.'s probable ascension to the presidency is a welcome step away from that debacle, and once the executive director position is filled the NBA might finally agree on standards for HGH testing. Possible candidates to replace Hunter include Steve Mills, Fred Whitfield and Stu Jackson, according to Fox Sports, while the New York Times refutes reports that Isiah Thomas is in the mix.

Roger Mason said that he will run for president of the National Basketball Players Association.

Outside of Mason's "looking like a season. How u," tweet during the NBA lockout in 2011, he hasn't really been in the headlines. He is still unsigned and is unlikely to make much of an impact on the court this season.

Roger Mason started at shooting guard for Eric Gordon (resting knee) and had nine points, three assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers Wednesday.

He'll go right back to the bench once Gordon is back, which should be Friday at Atlanta.

Roger Mason caught fire in the fourth quarter and finished with a season-high 17 points, five rebounds, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers on 6-of-7 shooting.

This was Mason's sixth double-figure scoring game of the season and he simply got hot late. Ignore him in all but the deepest of leagues.

Roger Mason Jr. played just 15 minutes on Saturday and he may be on the bubble as the Hornets' starting SG.

Monty Williams said recently that he would shake up the backcourt if he didn't see defensive improvement, but it's not as though Austin Rivers or Darius Miller have done anything to deserve a promotion. No matter who is starting, fantasy owners should swerve to avoid Mason Jr.

Roger Mason started at shooting guard over rookie Austin Rivers and had nine points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on 3-of-12 shooting.

The shooting was obviously awful, but the rest of his line looked pretty good. Rivers had just three points in 16 minutes and dropping him for Mason in deep leagues makes some sense, but only if Mason is going to hold onto the job long term. And we just don't know if it's going to happen or not.
