Summary:

Makai Mason is a smart, skilled point guard that can shoot and pass the basketball.  He is one of the stars of the 2016 NCAA Tournament, as he helped Yale upset a Baylor team that featured current Atlanta Hawks forward Taurean Prince.  Mason may not possess elite physical tools and he missed ample time due to a foot injury, his skills, ability to run the point, and court savvy could perhaps enable him to compete for an NBA summer league roster spot in the future.
