The Brooklyn Nets have been busy adding talent to their roster as they prepare for a deep playoff run in the 2013-14 NBA season, but they could lose some depth at point guard in free agency as C.J. Watson gauges interest around the league.
While it has been quiet on the Watson front early on in the free agency period, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly emerged as a potential suitor.
From Alex Kennedy of USA Today property Hoops World:
The Cleveland Cavaliers were the first team to reach out to unrestricted free agent C.J. Watson, according to source.

Watson would join the Cavaliers to provide depth behind Kyrie Irving if he was to join the team, but he would not be an impact player.
Last season with the Nets, Watson averaged just 6.8 points, 2 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game.
Free agency kicked off just after midnight, so be sure to stay tuned to FanSided.com throughout the free agency period as we keep you up to date with the latest news and rumors from around the league.
