WEIGHT: 185 POUNDS
POSITION: POINT GUARD
PROJECTED DRAFT POSITION: EARLY TO MID SECOND ROUND
PLAYER SUMMARY: Kansas had another fantastic season in 2016-17. Leading the way for them was the winner of a few National Player of the Year Awards.
Frank Mason will forever be remembered in Lawrence, Kansas. The senior PG had a phenomenal college career. While on the short side for a PG, Mason will get drafted in the upcoming 2017 NBA Draft.
Leader. Mason is a fantastic leader and is the consummate teammate. Whenever a play needed to be made, he always seemed to come through. Winner. Not too many college players won more games during a college career than Frank Mason.
Mason is a solid athlete. He is very shifty and crafty who finds away to finish at the rim against taller players. He is an above average shooter with NBA 3-point range. He has rebounded at a high rate for a PG.
Mason plays with a swagger and confidence that not many players in college play with. He is tough and strong, afraid to back down from anyone. While his lack of ideal height will most likely limit him to back-up point guard duties, we wouldn’t be surprised at all if he became a very good back-up PG.
In our opinion, you can’t judge Frank Mason by just his stats. It would be doing him a disservice. He has the natural leadership abilities that can’t be taught. While he will be a 2nd round pick, we are confident enough that he can stick with an NBA team his rookie year. In 3-4 years, we think Mason can turn into a very good NBA PG who can come off the bench and lead the 2nd unit of an NBA team. He has the IT factor.
