The Chicago Bulls have decided to let go of C.J. Watson, leaving a hole at point guard while Derrick Rose recovers from a knee injury.
With the drafting of rookie PG Marquis Teague and the signing of combo guard Kirk Hinrich, it became no secret that C.J. Watson's time as a member of the Chicago Bulls was likely over. Late Tuesday night, Watson confirmed as much, tweeting that he was "clos[ing] one chapter" and "open[ing] another."
