Desmond Mason - Desmond Mason now works in a bank.

Desmond Mason - In the summertime, it was said that Mason wanted to make one last comeback attempt. However, as of right now, it has not happened. Mason is instead making his way as an artist, something that was always a part-time venture during his NBA career. Three months ago, Mason won a year's free use of an art studio, for the showcasing of his work. No longer the athlete he was, Mason's previous comeback attempt with the Kings was not pretty. And outside of that one summertime sentence, there's not a whole lot of evidence that another one is sought. But if it is, Mason will be on the radar because of the pedigree of his CV, moreso than his time with the Kings.

Desmond Mason - Mason started the year with the Kings, but he really did not look good. He put up a 6.2 PER, and was quickly waived. Mason remained unsigned since; proposed links to a couple of different ACB teams never came off. With his athleticism going, Mason hasn't a lot to offer any more, save for reasonable perimeter defence and some 6'7 posting-up. The jumpshot never developed and now never will.

- Desmond Mason
Mason started the year with the Kings. Despite already having Kevin Martin, Francisco Garcia (neither of whom were injured at the time), Tyreke Evans, Donte Greene, Andres Nocioni and Omri Casspi all available to play at the 2 and/or 3 spots, the Kings felt they needed another wing option and brought in Mason for training camp. Even though he didn't really show anything, Mason made the team, and he then bizarrely started 4 games to begin the year. The experiment quickly ended after Mason put up a 6.2 PER, and Mason was waived. He has remained unsigned since; proposed links to a couple of different ACB teams never came off.
