Knicks Will Sign Roger Mason Jr.

The New York Knicks were in the market for a shooter and are picking up Roger Mason Jr. Mason is coming off of a down year with the Spurs where he fell out of the rotation and performed poorly.

Talk about a perfect fit for the Knicks. A guy who shots the ball from the outside and doesn't do a hell of a lot else. At the $1.4 million price tag, I love it. Mason should get more opportunities to play, as long as his shot is there. D'Antoni will know how to set him up just right and Raymond Felton can feed him the rock.

Knicks fans: you're not getting Rudy Fernandez anymore, but hey, Mason Jr. is not a bad piece. Shooting was needed from the guard positions and that's what he'll provide.
