DraftExpress Overseas Free Agent Rankings: Players 13-24

Watson has never gotten much attention from the NBA, which is a bit surprising considering his physical tools and the way he's produced in the Euroleague over the past few years. He's again leading the Euroleague in rebounding this season, averaging just a hair under 15-boards per-40 minutes pace adjusted, and while he's doing it for a bad team, he's obviously a guy that at the very least deserves an extended look.

Watson fits the mold of your undersized bruiser who likes to mix it up inside and finds a way to get the job done. He has a wide body to go along with a great wingspan, excellent hands and solid athleticism, and while he can look a bit lazy at times getting up and down the floor and competing defensively, you can't argue with the production he brings to the table, as he's also an excellent finisher around the basket.

He's a tough guy who is not afraid to stick his nose in on the offensive glass, and it's possible that in the right role with the added motivation that should come with playing in the NBA, he could be a valuable contributor at the 4/5 spots coming off the bench. He's one of the rare big men on this list who isn't making much more than the NBA minimum, so it's possible that an offer of that nature could be enough to get the job done.
