“I’m definitely excited. It was the reason why it was a no-brainer to come back here. If we are healthy, we will be dangerous.”
Jamison said Arenas sent him a text message Monday after hearing of his extension, and Jamison was “confident” that Arenas would re-sign. “He just likes to go at his own pace.”
Meanwhile, seven teams in addition to the Wizards contacted Mason on the first day of free agency.
The UVa product and D.C. native is coming off a career year in which he averaged 9.1 points off the bench and led the team in 3-point shooting percentage with .398.
Mason’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, said Tuesday morning he was scheduling multiple visits for Mason.
When reached later Tuesday, Mason said he would like to return to the Wizards, but he also would like the chance to have a more significant role on a team.
