Watson Is On The Block

There are times when getting traded is beyond awesome and being traded from OKC would be one of those times. Earl Watson knows that he could be traded soon because of his sexy contract, and he doesn’t seem to broken up about the prospects of a trade involving himself happening.

“Watson lost his starting job a month ago to rookie Russell Westbrook. With Westbrook in the team’s future, Watson, making $6.2 million this season and $6.6 million next season to conclude his contract, knows he’s on the block. “It’s obvious the way things are going,” he said. “We’re a team that’s still in transition. . . . You try to be professional and try to mesh in, and try to make the best out of this team.”
