(WSCR) C.J. Watson, Derrick Rose’s former back up, said today that Deron Williams was the NBA’s best point guard.
According to tweets from The New York Daily News’ Stefan Bondy and The Star-Ledger‘s Colin Stephenson, Watson made the comments during his introductory press conference with the Brooklyn Nets.
The Bulls declined to pick up Watson’s $3.2 million option, leading the point guard to sign a two-year deal with the Nets.
CJ Watson "I always thought Deron was best point guard in the league, always playing against him, watching him."—

Watson calls Deron the best point guard in the league. Says Derrick Rose won't be mad at him for saying that.—
