The Jazz are expected to seek an outside shooting threat at the wing position in free agency this year, and two such players are interested in filling that role, reports Brian T. Smith of The Salt Lake Tribune. Danny Green and Roger Mason have interest in signing with Utah, Smith says, and a source close to Green says the Jazz could be a "perfect fit."
Green, a restricted free agent, came out of relative obscurity to become the starting two-guard for the Spurs this past season, connecting on 43.6% of his three-point attempts. The Jazz reportedly sought to trade for Green close to the deadline this year, and the Celtics are another potential suitor.
Mason, meanwhile, averaged 5.5 PPG on 39.9% shooting in 52 games for the Wizards in 2011/12. The shooting guard, who will turn 32 in the fall, seems unlikely to command more than the minimum salary this offseason.
While Mason will be an unrestricted free agent and is free to sign with any club, the Spurs extended Green a qualifying offer to make him a restricted free agent. So even if the Jazz sign Green to an offer sheet, San Antonio will have three days to match the offer.
