Wiz Re-Sign Roger Mason
Hope this wasn't already in our paper, but the Wiz have re-signed Roger Mason, one of the--no, check that, the--friendliest professional athlete I have ever covered, in any sport. Also, a close friend and repartee partner of Brendan Haywood's, which bodes well for Bog purposes. If I'm counting correctly, that gives the Wiz 15 players under contract, including Mike Hall and Donell Taylor, who have non-guaranteed contracts.
He averaged 2.7 points per game in about eight minutes last year, but shot just 33 percent from the field (32 percent from three), numbers which bothered a guy who sees himself as a legitimate scoring threat off the bench. On the other hand, he grew up rooting for the Bullets and is a D.C. kid.
"My heart is in DC," Mason said according to the release. "I feel like I can have a great role with the Wizards and that we have a chance to be a great team this year."
Although, odds are, Mason is too torn up about that Redskins game yesterday to be feeling much joy today. Only partially joking. Also, since everything this day must be Redskins related, don't forget that Mason's dad is Otis Wonsley.
Also, Wiz media day is next Monday. Remember, it was at last year's media day that Gilbert first started talking about his oxygen tent and kicked off the greatest year for blogging in D.C. sports history, according to me, based on no research.
