C.J. Watson Re-Signed by Warriors
The Golden State Warriors added to their point guard depth be re-signing C.J. Watson. Contract details for the 25-year-old out of Tennessee weren’t immediately available.
In the 2008-09 season, Watson played his second season with the Warriors. He averaged 9.5 points, 2.7 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 24.5 minutes per game. In his rookie season, Watson averaged 3.7 points per contest in 11.5 minutes.
At 6-foot-2, Watson is blessed with long arms and above average athleticism. He has good range on his jumper and he’s able to make it to the basket. While his passing and court vision are below par for the NBA level, he’s a good fit on Don Nelson’s offensive scheme.
Next year, the Warriors look to be loaded at point guard. To get playing time, Watson will have to compete with Monta Ellis and rookie Stephen Curry. It’ll be difficult for Watson to play as much as he did season due to the increased competition but he’s shown enough potential to put up a good fight.
