2010 NBA Free Agency: How C.J. Watson Helps the Chicago Bulls

July 20th, 2010 by Pedro Gonzalez Leave a reply »
Yesterday, Internet sources stated that Golden State Warriors PG C.J. Watson would be involved in a sign-and-trade with the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls supposedly will send a second round pick to the Warriors for Watson, who will earn $10 million over three years with the first two years guaranteed.

Even though he had a very successful college career, Watson went undrafted and became a journeyman. He played for the San Antonio Spurs Summer League team, then  overseas, first with the Pallacanestro Reggiana from Italy and later on the PAOK Thessaloniki BC.

After a season in Europe he decided to comeback home and revive his NBA career. After a failed effort to join a couple of teams, he decided to play in the D-League, where he averaged 26.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.38 steals in 38.1 minutes a game.

The Warriors picked him Watson, and he backed up All-Star Baron Davis until Davis left for the L.A. Clippers.

Since signing with the Warriors, he has shown improvement every year, and last year he had career-high averages in points (10.3), rebounds (2.6), assists (2.8), steals (1.6), FG% (.468), and minutes (27.5).
