Ex-Cav Mason Finds New NBA Home

The NBA career of former Virginia basketball star Roger Mason, Jr. is taking him to the Big Easy.

The 31-year-old Mason agreed to a contract with the New Orleans Hornets, according to a Yahoo! Sports report on Wednesday. The Hornets will be the sixth NBA team that Mason as played for.

Mason appeared in 52 games with the Wizards in 2011-12, averaging 5.5 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. It was Mason's second stint in Washington, during an eight-year career that also includes stops with the Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, San Antonio Spurs, and New York Knicks.
