C.J. Watson going to Chicago in a sign-and-trade for 2nd-round pick.
The Chicago Bulls and Golden State
Warriors have completed a sign-and-trade for C.J. Watson, according to
sources. Watson, who was a restricted free agent, will be dealt to
Chicago in exchange for a second round pick. He has agreed to a three
year, $10.2 million deal with the Bulls.
Great, great deal for the Bulls.
Watson's one of the better back up PGs in the game. He's a scorer who can shoot the ball and gives us another player who can create off the dribble and put pressure on the defense with his ability to drive.
He's young, fits in well with the Bulls core, and fills needs with his shot creation and shooting ability.
The Bulls have really done an excellent job at filling in the spare parts this summer, the big three had their plan, but as far as fallbacks go, you can't fault the Bulls on any moves so far with the possible exception of not making a stronger push for Anthony Morrow.
