Schmitz: Orlando Magic Could Consider Adding Roger Mason as an Alternative to J.J. Redick

The Orlando Magic could look to sign free-agent shooting guard Roger Mason Jr. if they elect not to match the Chicago Bulls' offer to J.J. Redick, suggests Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel. To be clear, nothing in Schmitz's blog post indicates the Magic are actively looking at him; Schmitz appears to merely be offering a cheaper Redick alternative.

Mason, who turns 30 the week before training camp, is a six-year veteran of four teams. He most recently averaged 6.3 points on 38.9% shooting with the San Antonio Spurs.

The Magic must make a decision about Redick's offer by Friday. At yesterday's introductory press conference for Quentin Richardson, GM Otis Smith indicated that ownership will have a big say in whether to match Redick's offer.

Letting Redick leave, and replacing him with an older, inferior player such as Mason, would signal a shift in policy for Orlando, which has spared no expense in assembling a championship-caliber team over the last several seasons.
