According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Roger Mason has asked to be traded and the Spurs are looking to accommodate him.
“Roger had a terrific season last year after the Spurs had a bunch of injuries, and now that everyone is back healthy and his minutes are limited, the Spurs are trying to do the right thing and find a good spot for him,” Mason’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, told Yahoo! Sports on Monday.
According to the report, there is strong interest in Mason from other teams. Especially because he has an expiring contract which make him an even more attractive piece to make a trade possible.
This comes just days after Mason told Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News he wanted to stay in San Antonio for the remainder of his career and try to win a championship.
His minutes and numbers are down from last season. Last season he averaged 30 minutes a game and 12 points. This season, he is averaging 19 minutes a game and averaging 7.4 points. Mason is asking to be traded to a team where he can play a significant role.
With the trade deadline coming this Thursday, Project Spurs will keep an eye out on this and stay tuned to Project Spurs for all the latest Spurs’ trade rumors.
