Sources: Watson leaves Nets for Pacers
By ESPN.com news services
C.J. Watson, backup point guard for the Brooklyn Nets, agreed to a two-year contract with the Indiana Pacers, sources confirmed to ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard.
Watson's agreement was earlier reported by HoopsWorld.
Watson tweeted "keep up with the pace" on Monday, in an apparent nod to his choice of teams.
Watson, 29, had a player option for $1.1 million but opted out to become an unrestricted free agent.
He likely will replace unrestricted free agent D.J. Augustin as the main backup to starting point guard George Hill in Indiana.
In 80 games last season, Watson averaged 6.8 points and 2.0 assists for Brooklyn.
