The Milwaukee Bucks have added former consensus College Player of the Year Frank Mason III on a two-way contract, but what do you need to know about him?
After adding Cameron Reynolds to what was then their only vacant two-way spot in recent days, the Milwaukee Bucks made further notable moves at that level on Saturday as they inked Frank Mason III to a two-way deal.
Mason, a 5’11” point guard, will join Reynolds in splitting time between the Bucks and the Wisconsin Herd in the G League next season, and represents something of a coup for Milwaukee to get him signed up on a contract of that nature.
Prior to being drafted 34th overall in 2017, Mason left Kansas as the Consensus National College Player of the Year. Unfortunately for him, opportunities to play have been few and far between in the NBA as he landed behind De’Aaron Fox in Sacramento.
Still, Mason’s college exploits left no doubt as to his impressive ability and attitude, and even at 25 years old there’s reason to believe there may still be untapped potential at the NBA level.
The Bucks will hope to be the team to bring that out of Mason, particularly as their point guard rotation may well give him a chance to play at points next season. It seems as if Mason is excited by that prospect too, and he’s undoubtedly saying all of the right things to start off his Milwaukee tenure.
With that in mind, let’s get to know Mason’s game and career so far just a little better as he embarks on the next chapter with Milwaukee.
