Somehow lands a starting role in Phoenix and opens up the year with back-to-back double doubles. He's also blocking shots and giving solid minutes all-around for the team.
Watching a lot of ACC basketball, I always felt Miles and Mason had some unique athleticism that could be put to use in the NBA. Seems Hornacek noticed it too and he's getting major production so far from the second year player who basically was a bench warmer all of last year.
Muscle, speed, athleticism, and smart players. Both he and Mason always seemed to be lacking in skillset, neither really had a go to move to fear, but there's always time to develop one.
From 55 minutes last year and Dleague action to solid contributor.
