According to an article by Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express News, Roger Mason’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, clarified his comments about Mason’s trade demand.
“It’s not a trade demand,” Bartelstein told the Express-News on Monday night. “It’s simply, if there’s an answer to the problem of not enough minutes, and everybody can come out good, they should look at that. That’s all that’s going on.”
Bartelstein said Mason was “happy playing for (Gregg Popovich) and San Antonio has been good to him.”
“It’s just that players like to play,” Bartelstein said.
Bartelstein insisted Mason would be comfortable finishing the season with the Spurs, should a suitable trading partner not be found.
