According to this Draft Express article, the Warriors may soon call up C.J. Watson, the D-League Player of the Month for December.
Rio Grande Valley Vipers point guard and DraftExpress blogger C.J. Watson has been named the D-League performer of the month for December. In his first D-League season, Watson has averages of 25.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game while shooting 51.4% from the field. The 23 year-old point guard has the Vipers at 9-5 on the season, while leading the team in both scoring assists. Watson currently ranks atop our call-up list, and has been closely followed by a number of NBA scouts this season. The Vipers rely on him to run their offense, gearing their sets around pick and rolls where he can either score or dish the ball to one of his shooters on the wing. A graduate of Tennessee, Watson played overseas last season, before joining the Charlotte Bobcats for training camp in October. The Vipers selected him 5th overall in the 2007 D-League draft. There are rumors that he may get a callup from the Golden State Warriors sometime soon.
I don't remember seeing Watson play in college, but his D-League stats look pretty good. His shooting %'s (50.6% FG, 40% 3P, 89.8% FT) are extremely solid and he can obviously put the ball in the hole (26.4 ppg). His 1.66 assist/ turnover ratio is pretty suspect tho. Obviously, how well he plays defense is pretty important as well.
