Roger Mason Jr. Signs With Hornets, According To Report

The New Orleans Hornets have added more shooting to their backcourt, signing former Washington Wizards guard Roger Mason Jr., according to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears. Terms of the contract have not been reported, but Mason was reportedly looking for more than a one-year minimum contract from the Wizards.

After struggling with the Knicks, Mason had a better shooting season last year, hitting 38 percent of his three-pointers. He is clearly a reserve player, but he also will be a good locker-room presence for a young Hornets roster. Most likely, he'll play behind Eric Gordon, Austin Rivers and Greivis Vasquez in the Hornets' backcourt.

The Hornets will be Mason's sixth NBA team. After brief stints with the Bulls and Raptors, Mason played two years with the Wizards, two years with the Spurs and one year with the Knicks before returning to Washington last season.
