Great move by the Spurs. Class guy to the extreme. Character that matches with SA. Really solid 3 point shooter who can play both guard positions.

Oh and you might wanna add this to your post:

Mason had been wooed by the Spurs last summer, but instead chose to sign a one-year $770,610 with the beleif that he could benefit from the continuity he had with the Wizards. Mason's gamble paid off. With Gilbert Arenas missing 69 games while recovering from knee surgery, Mason's minutes increased and he averaged a career-high 9.1 points and a team-high .398 shooting percentage from 3-point range. When Arenas' fill-in Antonio Daniels went down with a knee injury of his own, Mason stepped in as a starter and averaged 17.4 points while boasting a 3-point shooting percentage of .431.

Mason's standout season earned him a high amount of attention during the first day of free agency, as 10 teams contacted him on July 1, Mason said.
