Roger Mason to San Antonio
 
Not sure if this is out already but I just heard it and will try to confirm

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.

Fuck.

Mason is a fucking solid player. He'll really open up the floor for Ginobili and Duncan.

Fucking spurs.

They need someone off the bench who wasn't born before World War II. Mason can fill that role I suppose.

I guess this puts an end to the Delfino to San An talks?

Yup. Looks like he's returning to Detroit.

unfortunately we had zero money afterall and it wasnt going to happen.
shame.

I'd like to see what Roko would've thought about the idea.

I really like this guy. He'd be a great back-up for Tony and will bring lots of morale to the team. But I don't think he'd be right for us. Let Roko be our 2nd-stringer.

yea we have to see what roko can do then decide if we need a Pg to sub in for Jose but right now i think roko will be good
