29-year old point guard C.J. Watson is going to opt out of his contract to become a unrestricted free agent. It’s a smart move for Watson as he will get a lot more than the $1.11 million bucks that he was set to make with the Nets in 2013-14. Watson played in 80 games (8 starts) for the Nets last year and he averaged 19.0 minutes, 6.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. Watson has now played in 385 games (67 starts) in his first six years in the NBA and he is averaging 20.3 minutes, 7.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game. If the season started today, 2nd year point guard Tyshawn Taylor would be Deron Williams’ backup in 2013-14. Look for the Nets to sift the free agent bargain bin for a replacement for Watson.
