Done in Sacramento, where might new free agent Frank Mason end up?

For now, Frank Mason III is a Sacramento King. Kind of. But not really. The franchise that drafted the former Kansas All-American in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft announced earlier this week it is waiving Mason but keeping the 25-year-old point guard on its summer league roster. The ...

Path to Golden State roster spot will be difficult for Dedric Lawson

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2019/feb/11/328705/ There are far easier paths to an NBA career than the one Dedric Lawson must now traverse. No one expected the offensively gifted forward who spent his redshirt junior season at Kansas leading the Big 12 in scoring and rebounding to become a ...

Udoka Azubuike in early stages of getting back to his dominating ways

Silvio De Sousa’s return ‘motivating’ Jayhawks already

Topeka — On what seemed at the time like an uneventful Friday afternoon in late May, a two-word text message sent University of Kansas guard Ochai Agbaji into a frenzy. “He’s free,” read the incoming note on Agbaji’s phone, sent from Fred Quartlebaum, the team’s director of ...

Devon Dotson’s presence eliminates concerns, raises KU’s ceiling

A Devon Dotson-less Kansas basketball team would have figured out some way to succeed in the 2019-20 season — Bill Self is still the Jayhawks’ head coach, after all. That alternate reality isn’t one even the most die-hard KU follower could stomach in fan fiction form, though. If Dotson ...
