Free agent guard Earl Watson was in the mix for a handful of teams that needed a back up point guard including the New York Knicks, but now that we are nearly a full week in to the free agency period Watson has found his new home and it will be in the Pacific Northwest. According to reports, Watson has signed with the Portland Trail Blazers.

From Ken Berger of CBS Sports:

It is a low-risk move for the Blazers that can only get better by adding depth in their back court.

Free agency kicked off just after midnight on Monday, so be sure to stay tuned to throughout the free agency period as we keep you up to date with the latest news and rumors from around the league.
