Watford signs to play in Israel … or maybe not

Hat tip to former IDS reporter and current Sports Illustrated web producer Matt Dollinger for pointing this out on Twitter. Indiana’s Christian Watford has signed to play with Hapoel Eilat in Israel per RealGM.com. Hoping for more on this later.

UPDATE: Christian Watford said he hasn’t yet signed with Hapoel Eilat, denying not only the RealGM report but a release on the Hapoel Eilat website (which can be read here in Hebrew…yes really) and is still considering other contract offers from international teams. He said he hopes to make a decision later today or tomorrow, however. It is still possible that he will sign with Hapoel Eilat,  but it is not yet a done deal. He said he has at least committed to going to the international route and will not attempt to play in an NBA training camp.


  1. So, do you retract the ‘hat-tip’? Or just place it in the ‘pending’ file while CWat considers his offers?
