Mason scored 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt) while adding an assist and a steal in 22 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 110-83 loss to the Wizards.
The Kings were down by 31 at the half, so coach Dave Joerger emptied his bench in the third and fourth quarters, with the little-used Mason stepping up and taking advantage of his garbage-time minutes. The solid performance may move him up a spot or two on the backcourt depth chart, but don't expect the 23-year-old to start getting regular court time.
Mason managed 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three assists and one rebound across 18 minutes in Friday's 117-106 preseason loss to the Warriors.
Mason put his best foot forward this preseason in a bid for a roster spot, posting double-digit scoring efforts in four of five exhibitions and shooting at least 50.0 percent from the field in all of those contests. The 2017 second-round pick seems to have secured a modest backcourt rotation role at a minimum for the coming season, with the opportunity for an expansion of his role as the campaign unfolds.
Mason managed 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal across 24 minutes in Thursday's 104-87 preseason loss to the Clippers.
The 2017 second-round pick continued to put his best foot forward in his bid for a roster spot, generating his third double-digit scoring effort in four exhibitions. The 23-year-old also posted a preseason-best 71.4 percent success rate from the field and upped his assist totals for the second consecutive contest. Mason will have one more opportunity to display his wares when the Kings tangle with the Warriors in Friday night's preseason finale.
Mason poured in 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and added five rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes in Monday's 97-83 preseason loss to the Trail Blazers.
The second-round pick might have an uphill battle to playing time at point guard behind the likes of veteran Garrett Temple and first-round pick De'Aaron Fox, but he's certainly making a strong case this preseason. Mason bounced back from a 2-for-9 effort versus the Spurs last Friday to post an exhibition-best 57.1 percent success rate from the field Monday while seeing a preseason-high amount of playing time. He's posted a pair of double-digit scoring efforts through the first three games while also putting some solid rebounding numbers. Mason's brings a well-polished game after four college seasons and could certainly carve out some decent playing time on a rebuilding Kings squad during the coming campaign.
Mason finished with 17 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 22 minutes during Monday's 106-100 preseason victory over the Spurs.
Mason, a second-round pick with four years of collegiate experience, wasted no time adjusting to NBA competition during Monday's debut. His speed and explosiveness was clearly an issue for the Spurs on defense, as they sent him to the line for six free throws. While he's not projected to see significant minutes, Mason is in a great position to earn playing time considering the Kings are in a rebuilding effort.
