The Saint John Mill Rats signed NBA D-League draft pick, 6’6 Marlin Mason, from Cleveland State.
The 6’6 versatile and athletic forward was drafted by the Delaware 87ers last month, but was waived after training camp.
At Cleveland State, Mason averaged 8.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 1 block per game on 56% shooting from the field and 37% from behind the arc.
“Marlin is an all-around skilled two-way player,” said Mill Rats Head Coach Rob Spon. “He is the type of athlete we are looking to build our team with this year, and with an emphasis on defense.”
