UPDATE (9/10/09 10:40am): Also make sure to check out some sharp words by GSoM buddy Matt Steinmetz over at FanHouse- For C.J. Watson, It's Not About the Money
Allen Iverson to the Memphis Grizzlies [Straight Outta Vancouver] (WHY?) isn't the only big signing of the day. The Warriors have re-signed C.J. Watson [Warriors.com press release]. As of this writing the exact terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but I'm guessing it's for 1 year and a shade over 1 million George Washingtons.
Maybe I should have titled this BREAKING NEWS: Warriors Continue String of MEANINGLESS Offseason Moves.
JUMP for more.
Here's Warriors GM Larry Riley's take on the signing:
"We are happy that C.J. will be returning to our team next season. He has taken full advantage of his opportunities since being called-up from the D-League two seasons ago and has worked hard to make himself into a quality NBA player. We look forward to him having another successful season and having a positive impact on our team."
Jamal Crawford for 2 guys who probably won't even play. (See Asking GSoM)
- C.J. Watson~ $1.x million
- Devean George- $1.6 million
- Mikkie Moore- $1.3 million
- Acie Law- $2.2 million
- Speedy Claxton- $5.2 million
Props to C.J. even though he probably doesn't want to be a member of the GSW.
