NEW YORK (WFAN) – The Knicks have finally found their shooting guard. Roger Mason is headed to Madison Square Garden.

After missing out on free agent Shannon Brown and unable to deal with the Portland Trailblazers for Rudy Fernandez, New York moved swiftly to secure Mason.

Mason announced the deal on his Twitter page.

In 140 characters or less, Mason excitedly posted:

“Im headed to the BIG APPLE!!!!! With a BIG CHIP on my shoulder!!!!!! LETGO!!!!!!!!!!!!Knicks Fans, talk to me!!!!!!”

He later added:

“I Will Always Have Love For Spurs fans! Thank you for the support the last 2 years!! You guys were the best!”

The Knicks and Mason agreed to a one-year deal, reportedly worth $1.4 million.

Mason played in 79 contests for the San Antonio Spurs last season, averaging 6.3 points in 19 minutes per game.

    Is it me or is this Twitter thing really stupid. With the exception of his family, why would anyone follow this guy on Twitter? Maybe he’ll tweet while riding the pine. He should have tweeted something like “The knicks were smart to sign me one year so they can have money to sign Melo next year”

    Why only 19mins per game? Who is Roger Mason?

    Good signing, 1 year deal, now they can focus on getting Melo
