Josh Childress, the 6'9" forward amnestied by the Suns in July, has agreed to a one year, non-guaranteed deal. Howard Beck tweeted the news shortly after 5 p.m. Childress worked out with the Nets on Tuesday morning, meeting with Billy King and Avery Johnson as well. Childress himself confirmed the signing in a tweet: "Looking forward to the opportunity in Brooklyn. #GodisGood."

Childress, 29, is now the leading candidate to back up Gerald Wallace at the small forward. He had four productive years with the Hawks, then spent two disappointing years with Olympiacos in Greece before returning before the 2010-11 season. He signed a five year, $33.5 million with the Suns, who finally decided to dump him as part of the CBA's amnesty provision. He will be paid $21 million over the next three years by the Suns. Any money he earns with the Nets will be deducted from what Phoenix owes him.
