Roger Mason Jr. Earning Role With HEAT?
It’s pretty obvious after Monday night that Roger Mason Jr. is making the team as the HEAT’s third point guard. Mason scored 14 points off the bench and played more minutes (27) than anyone in the HEAT’s first game of the preseason. The HEAT defeated the Hawks 92-87.
“He’s a great fit,” said James of Mason. “He’s just a solid basketball player that knows how to play the game. He’s a combo guard who can spread the floor but also handle the ball, he doesn’t make any mistakes and he fits right in.”
