The Wizards have announced they have agreed to terms with free agent Roger Mason Jr. 

“Roger is a solid veteran presence who can give us quality production and shooting on the court and valuable leadership in the locker room and in the community,” said Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld in a release issued by the team. 


“We are obviously very familiar with him from his previous two seasons here and are thrilled to have him return to his hometown.”

Mason has appeared in 372 games over seven NBA seasons in stints with Chicago, Toronto, Washington, San Antonio and New York. His career average is 6.9 points and 1.8 rebounds; his 3-point shooting percentage is .380. 

During Mason’s time with the Wizards from 2006-08, he averaged 6.3 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 142 games. 

A second-round draft selection by the Chicago Bulls in 2002, 31st overall, Mason averaged career highs of 11.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists while posting a career-high .421 mark from 3-point range with the Spurs during the 2008-09 season.

“Done deal. I’m officially a Wizard! Lets go!” Mason said on his Twitter account.
