RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Watson will serve as an insurance policy to starting point guard George Hill this season and will play a role in improving the Pacers' weak bench scoring from last season. Coach Frank Vogel may also look to move him over to shooting guard at times, which will help increase the six-year veteran's minutes.

2012-13

A shrewd pickup for the Nets, Watson was effective but erratic at times in two years with Chicago, but proved on more than one occasion that he could handle a full load if need be - something he was required to do during Derrick Rose's injury-plagued 2011. He averaged 9.7 points, 4.1 assists, and 0.9 swipes in just over 23 minutes per game last year, and fantasy owners can expect him to post similar numbers backing up another of the league's top point guards in Williams.

Watson will once again backup both guard spots but see most of his action at the point. He showed he is a better scorer than passer, so expect to see some big games mixed amongst ones where he provides minimal production.

Watson will back up at both guard spots. He will see most of his time behind Rose but will be used in tandem with Rose at times to push the ball up the floor. That said, Watson is a better scorer than passer, so expect to see some big games mixed amongst ones where he provides minimal production.

Watson rejected a three-year contract from the Warriors this summer and opted to sign a one-year deal that will make him an unrestricted free-agent at the end of next year. The contract rejection could be a sign that Watson is unhappy with his role with the team as he enters the season in a fight for backup point guard minutes with rookie Stephen Curry. Watson averaged 9.5 points and 2.7 assists last year but could have problems getting consistent quality minutes in the Warriors' crowded backcourt.
