Default Roger Mason was "the one that got away"

Roger Mason was "the one that got away"

Last year, Roger Mason turned down the Spurs' offer to come to San Antonio, but this year his addition to the Spurs' line-up is one of the most discussed and anticipated ones.

That's interesting given what Miami Heat President Pat Riley said on Thursday. Speaking to the Sun Sentinel, Riley said that only one player targeted by his team got away this summer.

The surprise was that player was guard Roger Mason Jr., who left the Washington Wizards to sign as a free agent with San Antonio.

Riley, addressing his team's personnel for the first time in weeks, said his goal had been to add both Mason and forward James Jones, but ultimately had to settle on adding Jones as a free agent from the Portland Trail Blazers.

"The only player that we didn't get in free agency that we wanted was Roger Mason and we couldn't. It was going to be either/or, really," Riley said shortly after a ceremony at AmericanAirlines Arena that saluted Dwyane Wade's gold-medal success at the Beijing Olympics. "We tried to convince one of them to take the $1.9 (million low-level salary-cap exception). But everybody else we wanted, we got."

Heat fans shouldn't be happy that their team didn't go after anyone else

Spurs fans should be slightly pleased, because Mason is decent as a backup
