Desmond Mason was never set up to be a legendary Bucks figure having arrived in Milwaukee as a part of the trade that saw Ray Allen leave for Seattle, but he was a solid contributor in his time with the team.
Mason’s stay with Milwaukee may not have been lengthy, but he significantly outlasted Gary Payton who was also traded with him. Having been a solid role player in Seattle, Mason took his play to a new level as a Buck.
Mason spent two-and-a-half years in Milwaukee before being traded, and then returned for one more season later in his career. The highlight of that time came for Mason in the 2004-05 season when he averaged 17.2 points per game.
For his complete Bucks tenure, Mason averaged 14.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game, while averaging 46.3 percent from the field.
