C.J. Watson never considered re-signing with the Chicago Bulls as a free agent in the offseason.
Watson's tenure with the Bulls ended controversially when he passed to 45-percent free throw shooter Omer Asik in the final seconds of their 79-78 Game 6 loss to the 76ers. Asik was fouled and missed both free throws.
“The season ended how it ended,” said Watson. “I wasn’t sorry about that. I knew I could do better. It was a critical mistake maybe at the time, but I didn’t think it was. I just thought I got mistreated.”
Watson returned to Chicago as a member of the Nets on Saturday.
