NBA Role: backup point guard Salty DOG

Nicknamed ‘Quiet Storm,’ CJ Watson’s a backup point guard who excels with his in-between game; pretty decent shooter: don’t leave CJ open from downtown or give him too much space after a screen; won’t push the button too often as a decision-maker – not a classic, “get everyone involved” playmaker; good scorer – CJ likes fading Js from about 18 feet; journeyman – began his career playing in Italy & Greece, has bounced around from coast to coast in the NBA; similar to Anthony Tolliver (SAC) & Anthony Morrow (CHI), CJ’s big break was a cameo spot (outta the D-League) when GS had a revolving, 10-day door a few moons ago; reunited* w/ Frank Vogel in Orlando – backs up Elfrid Payton at the 1

*technically, Watson got there first (arrived in 2015) – Vogel was hired in Summer 2016
