Strengths: Five-year veteran point guard CJ Watson will be an excellent second-unit floor general for the Nets next season.
The 28-year-old Watson brings invaluable experience to an otherwise young Nets second unit. He started 25 games on the Chicago Bulls in 2011-12.
Watson's playing style also suits the Nets offensive scheme, which will rely on up-tempo, perimeter-orientated play. His "spark plug" playing style off the bench generated nine points and four assists in just over 23 minutes of play last year.
Notably, Watson will spread the floor nicely for the Nets, shifting between playmaker and three-point sharpshooter. Last year, Watson averaged 39 percent from the three-point line based on 3.5 attempts a night.
A strong defender, Watson will lock down opposing second-unit guards next season.
Weaknesses: Watson's playing style relies on high-volume shooting. His scoring output was based on nine shots a game in limited minutes.
He will have to curb his role on the Nets at times to defer to other second-unit scoring options on the floor (Brooks, Teletovic), as well as when he is paired with starters.
If Watson cannot do this, then expect to see him execute excessive broken plays that will frustrate the Nets offense.
