And Josh Childress Makes 15

New, comments

Please welcome Josh Childress...officially. The Nets announced Thursday afternoon that the 6'8" small forward, amnestied by the Suns in July, has been signed, reportedly to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract. If he makes the team, as expected, Childress will earn $1.04 million.

After four productive years for the Hawks (where he was teammates with Joe Johnson), the Stanford grad decided to try the Euroleague. After two years with Olympiacos of Greece, he returned to the NBA and signed a five-year, $33.5 million contract with the Suns. But in two years, he averaged only four points a game and with amnestied with $21 million left on his deal. The Nets are expected to invite three other players to camp, one of whom is Carleton Scott.
