Nate Mason will play in France for the first time in his professional career after signing with Le Mans Sarthe Basket ahead of the 2023-2024 season. The 6'2" guard out of Minnesota is entering his fifth season of pro hoops, having played the past two seasons with the Guangzhou Loong Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association. He's also spent the past two summers (2022, 2023) in Puerto Rico playing for Atleticos de San German.
Last season, Mason averaged 16.8 points and 4.9 assists per game for Guangzhou while shooting 39 percent from the three-point line. He is joining a Le Mans team that went 19-15 in France's LNB Pro A league last season, advancing to the quarterfinals in the league playoffs. He joins fellow Americans Matt Lewis, DeVante Jones and D'Shawn Schwartz on this year's team.
