Well, there goes one name that you can scratch off of the free agency wish list. C.J. Watson is planning on signing with the Indiana Pacers on July 10 -- once the league moratorium lifts -- according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld and seemingly Watson himself.

Even though Watson would have been an awesome fit as a Cavalier, I'm glad that Watson is seemingly getting a multi-year deal above the league minimum. He's a bulldog defensively and a solid shooter that doesn't turn the ball over. I'm not sure what more you could ask from a backup point guard. He'll fit in nicely as a Pacer.

The Cavaliers were the first team to speak to Watson last night, but it looks like Watson wanted to secure a deal with a semi-contender before other point guards could get in the way. Good for him, and that means it's back to the drawing board for the Cavaliers.
