Report: C.J. Watson close to signing a 2-year deal with the Indiana Pacers

It appears as if former-Net C.J. Watson is closing in on signing a 2-year deal with the Indiana Pacers to be their backup point guard.

Watson, 29, averaged 6.8 points and 2.0 assists per game (19 minutes per) in his only season with the Brooklyn Nets. He was certainly a valued backup point guard, who unfairly will be remembered for missing a wide-open dunk against the Chicago Bulls that would spark a comeback in Game 4 of their first-round series.

The Nets search now continues as they look for a veteran point guard to come off the bench behind Deron Williams and share time with second-year player Tyshawn Taylor.
