Kings Waive Roger Mason Jr.

February 20 at 4:33pm CDT By Zach Links

The Kings announced that they have waived Roger Mason Jr.  Sacramento acquired the veteran from the Heat earlier today and the move was expected.

Mason is earning the minimum salary this year after making the Heat out of training camp. He’s receiving close to $1.4MM, but his cap hit is only $884,293.  The latter number will remain on Sacramento’s books, since his salary is guaranteed for the season.

The 10th-year veteran is averaging just 3.0 points in 10.4 minutes per game. but he’s made a pair of starts this season in place of an injured Dwyane Wade. Mason has also been a major force within the National Basketball Players Association during his time in the league, but that hasn’t kept him from securing NBA work despite having been only a fringe rotation player for most of the past four seasons.
