C.J. Watson is in South Africa for another few days, working with Basketball Without Borders, helping Popeye Jones among others run a clinic for the top Under-18 players across the continent. That comes after perfoming similar duties in Senegal in west Africa, that effort sponsored by the U.S. State Department.
His biggest thrill though came in the mail, his degree from Tennessee. "Every year since [I left] I’ve been going back and doing classes every summer," Watson told the Post. After he returns, he'll head to New York, get settled and spend several days working out at the PNY Center in mid-September. Deron Williams has said he'd like to see teammates gather then for informal workouts.
"Then I’ll go back home for two weeks, take my daughter off to school and then get back before training camp starts on Oct. 1," he said. That's now only a month away.
