Watson a Sonic
"Wattstax" is back!
The Sonics have finally pulled the trigger on the much-debated, never-consumated acquisition of Earl Watson from the Nuggets. (Thanks to Nate for the tip).
Here's how it breaks down:
Denver's 2nd-round pick
My initial reaction? The Sonics could be hoping that Watson pushes Frodo to perform at a higher level, and that he'll pair well with Ray. If that's the case ... it's still a dumb move. Guys like Earl Watson are not rare, and now we've wed ourselves to him for five years. Could not the Sonics have found someone similar in the free agent market/draft this summer, signed them to a cheaper, and shorter-term contract?
I understand the logic in shedding the Potato's contract and moving Reggie Evans, but this still doesn't seem wise to me.
