Mason Won’t Return to Thunder

It’s reaching the end of the line for Mason, but he should be able to latch onto a roster for this upcoming season… if he can remain healthy: “The Thunder will not bring back the former Oklahoma State standout and fan favorite. [...] Mason, an unrestricted free agent, became a casualty of the Thunder’s commitment to developing its young talent and was the odd man out on a roster that currently is one player below the NBA maximum of 15 allowed.”

    he is still one of the best dunkers in the L. and i remember the thunder games i watched last year, Mason was consantly bringing ‘it’.

    That sucks. I hope some team picks him up before the season starts.

    I wish he would have developed.

    If all else fails, go East! There’s always a team over there willing to add on a decent player

  • K-Nasty

    Cavs will get him.

    ^ That might be messing with chemistry. I could see him in the purgatory of Jersey or the hell of New York. Actually, the Celts might even be able to use him. They’re kind of hurting for an athletic finisher coming off the bench and playing on the wing. Houston would keep him close to home. What do you guys think?

    Celts could definitely use Mason.
    But the Knicks could use a different Mason. Anthony, to be exact.

    Matt Carroll traded, Desmond Mase cut from Thunder. Reminds of the classic SLAMADAMONTH. (“Maybe Matt just should have gotten outta the damn way”)
    SLAM used to rep that MASE on covers I’m sure you know Teddy, name (not cover story & photo shoot) all the time. And on Yahoo’s NBA photo gallery a couple days ago, Clyde Frasier, John Starks, new ’09 draftees, and the cap busting fiend himself Allan Houston were doing some city charity events. I hope that chintao didn’t see it and have his blood pressure instantly raised.
    Heh, Firefox auto spellcheck red underline for MASE: MASER MANSE MESA SAME MAS. No mas spell check on MASE!

    celtics, rockets and nuggets could all use him. I wonder who the nuggets are gonna sign to replace kleiza. let’s hope it isn’t nikolas tschiviskili.

    one trade I would like to see is tayshaun prince landing in cleveland him or luol deng are both perfect suplements to lebron

    Thanks for the shout, Blinguo. I would have remained blissfully ignorant of The Waterboy’s activities had you not shared them here. Just another instance of pure evil masquerading as charity.

    Clyde was wearing shorts and a tanktop as per the Summer heat. Starks inbetween casual and dressed up. Allan was in full 3 piece suit bought with dirty/tainted money of course, as if subconsciously rubbing it in? Nah, had to be deliberately on purpose.
