Roger Mason Jr is currently slated to be an assistant coach for the Washington Wizards' summer-league team, but his return to the roster is still up in the air. The Wizards are interested in keeping him, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard, but two other teams -- the New Orleans Hornets and Oklahoma City Thunder -- are also in the mix.

I was skeptical of the Wizards' decision to sign Mason last summer, but he exceeded my expectations, hitting 38 percent of his three-pointers and posting his highest PER since the last year of his previous stint with the Wizards. Washington let him go when they needed to free up a roster spot following a wrist injury, but he was basically still a part of the club, hanging around Verizon Center even after his release.

As always, it depends on price when it comes to Mason's return, but if the Wizards can keep him on the same kind of deal they signed him to last summer -- one year at the veteran's minimum -- I think it's a victory. He's a good shooter and a pro, and you could do far worse at the end of your bench.
