After waiting for other dominoes in free agency to fall, Frank Mason III has finally found himself a new home. The former Kansas star is signing with one of the few contenders in the NBA.
Even though Mason showed promise during his rookie season, the 25-year-old guard saw his numbers and playing time drop in his second year.
Mason was released by the Sacramento Kings earlier in the offseason. Fortunately for him, it didn’t take too long for him to find his next team.
According to NBA insider Shams Charania, the Milwaukee Bucks have signed Mason to a two-way contract.
This allows Mason to compete for the favorites in the Eastern Conference. He’ll serve a backup role to either Eric Bledsoe or George Hill.

Two-way contracts mean that players are paid based on the number of games played in each league. Basically, Mason’s salary depends on whether he’s suiting up in the NBA or G-League.
Mason will enter training camp with the chance to make the season-opening roster. After losing Malcolm Brogdon to the Pacers in free agency, Milwaukee can use another guard to provide depth.
The Bucks made another signing on Saturday, signing sharpshooting guard Kyle Korver to a one-year deal.
