NBA free agency rumors: C.J. Watson nears agreement with Indiana Pacers
The Indiana Pacers needed a backup point guard with D.J. Augustin becoming an unrestricted free agent, and it didn't take long for them to find a replacement. HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy reports Brooklyn Nets backup point guard C.J. Watson is close to finalizing an agreement with the Pacers.
Kennedy added that the contract is a two-year deal worth more than the league minimum.
Indiana at times struggled last season when starting point guard George Hill was on the bench. Augustin shot well below 40 percent from the field and only averaged 16.1 minutes per game, a sign that Pacers coach Frank Vogel leaned heavily on Hill simply from a minutes perspective.
