How many guys does Miami have now? -- Mason signs
 
Roger Mason signs on with Miami Heat

by Kurt Helin,Sep 27, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

Miami is always on the lookout for veterans they think they can bring on a minimum deal they think can help the team.

Apparently Roger Mason fits that bill as he can still knock down the three ball (41.5 percent from deep last season).

Mason announced he has signed with the Heat on twitter.

Roger Mason Jr @MoneyMase
God is so good! #blessed

Mason, 33 and best known recently for his front and center role with the union during the lockout, played last season with the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans) giving them nearly 18 minutes and 5.3 points a game. The Hornets offense was better when he was on the court last season but their defense struggled (the season before in Washington he played some good defense).

With Mike Miller amnestied the Heat need other guys who can play a limited role, walk in and knock down shots. Mason can do that and might be as good a fit for them as there was on the open market.

This is a make-good deal there are no guarantees, he will have to make the roster. The Heat have 13 guaranteed deals on the roster plus a handful of non-guaranteed deals such as Jarvis Varnado, Larry Drew II and Justin Hamilton (among others). One or two of the non-guaranteed players likely make the final roster.

I bet the number is 15 come opening night.

alh1020 09-30-13 07:01 PM

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it stayed at 14 signed roster players as it is now.

MRJONESIII 09-30-13 07:58 PM

Probably enough guys to match the Miami Dolphins roster!
