How did the Nets sign a healthy 28-year-old point guard who averaged 10 and 4 last seaon for the vets minimum? A player who started 25 games for a team that won more games than any team in the NBA? For starters, a call from Deron Williams and then one from Avery Johnson.

Then, there was Brooklyn...

"You’ve got a player with that experience who’s demonstrated the capability to lead the team in a major market, and he’s willing to make a financial sacrifice for something he believes in," said Jared Karnes, C.J. Watson's agent. "He believes in the Brooklyn Nets … we’re 100 percent behind them."
