Josh Childress signs with a Greek club, leaves NBA:
This is a really big deal, throws a monkeywrench into the whole restricted FA thing. Watch for loads of people to get extensions that they otherwise wouldn't. Like B. Jennings leaving Arizona for Europe, this changes the set of options that the NBA execs were assuming when they drafted rules.
On the flip side, what does it say about Josh Childress that he'd rather go play in relative anonymity in Greece instead of in the NBA? This is the opposite of the decision that Rudy made -- choosing to take (short term) more money to play against inferior competition. Will NBA teams still be there making offers three years from now if he wants to come back? Not so sure.
