Why not pick up Josh Childress?


He was released by the Nets... Surely he can contribute at SF.

A team can pay him a prorated portion of the minimum correct for the rest of the year, correct?

He may actually be our worst SF if we pick him up. He's averaging 1ppg on 28% shooting with a PER of 7, which is barely higher than Rivers.

re: Why not pick up Josh Childress?


You have to worry about a contender with space and needs picking him up. Being as his salary to his new team comes out of what he is owed, he will make the same money no matter the contract. It makes sense for him to take the minimum from whatever new team he chooses. So, money is not going to sway him at all.

Does he want PT or playoffs?

A full roster would either limit Dell this season or require dumping nonguaranteed deals to add players in a trade.

So, picking him up would have to fit with existing plans, and it might.

He played 7 minutes a game, dude. And he would be our best SF by far.

And he still has the fro

Surely he can play more efficient minutes than Lance Thomas or Darius Miller. The guy isn't an All-Star but he can play the game.

Make it happen Demps!

not sure if he has any game left. Atlanta stunted his growth, but he has always had a funky shot.
