Mason Jones’ tenure with 76ers was short-lived.
The team waived the rookie guard on Thursday, a little over a month after signing him to a two-way contract on March 26. The 6-foot-4 guard averaged 2.7 points and 4.5 minutes in six appearances with the Sixers.
Jones came to the Sixers following a stint with the Houston Rockets. He averaged 5.8 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 11.8 minutes in 26 games with Houston while on a two-way contract. The Rockets waived him on March 8 to sign rookie forward Anthony Lamb from Houston’s NBA G-League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. However, the Rockets signed him to a 10-day contract on March 11.
Jones was the SEC co-player of the year for the 2019-20 season. He averaged 22.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 steals per game for the Arkansas Razorbacks, where he was a teammate of Sixers rookie Isaiah Joe.
Jones also was a first-team all-conference selection and the league’s only player to lead his team in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals.
