View Full Version : Does Atlanta still hold Childress' rights?

If Childress ever wants to play in the NBA, does Atlanta still own his rights? I checked the CBA FAQ:

If the player is already under contract to, or signs a contract with a non-NBA team, the team retains the player's draft rights for one year after the player's obligation to the non-NBA team ends. Essentially, the clock stops as long as the player plays pro ball outside the NBA. Players are not included in the team's team salary while the player is under contract with a non-NBA team.

If anyone has info please post.

I'm pretty sure I read that if he returns to the NBA, he's still a restricted FA with Atlanta.

Yes when he comes back he's still a restricted FA.
