On my phone will post a link in a few. Very happy with the signing should be a solid backup to Wallace at SF



Josh Childress, the 6'9" forward amnestied by the Suns in July, was signed to a one year, non-guaranteed deal Tuesday. 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.

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.

Somewhere around 10th or 11th man behind Marshon, Watson, Teletovic, Blatche, and Evans.

Not a huge signing but decent depth. I would of liked McGuire but its just a non-guaranteed contract.

If he's anything like the old Josh Childress then he will be the backup SF to Wallace.

If not then it will be an open competition between him, Shengelia, and Keith Bogans for backup SF minutes.

Last year before he got hurt Bogans actually played pretty well at SF giving solid defense and hitting the occasional 3. I don't think Shengelia is NBA ready yet, so since Childress has the size advantage I see him getting the bulk of the backup minutes.

He's a good defender even if his offensive game has diminished over the years. We have plenty of offense, so a youngish defensive guy like Childress off the bench is nice.

Leandro Barbosa came out and said in an interview that the Nets are pursuing him the hardest. Would be an awesome pick up. 3rd string PG/SG who can hit the 3. Plus his added depth at the 2 would allow Joe Johnson/Marshon Brooks to slide to SF.

johnny i like ya bud from the 2k league but..... i dont see the nets being that great i mean dwill is awesome but jj is on the decline as is wallace, hump is a beast and lopez we'll he's a decent C! the bench i really dont think is that great watson is ok but wont get alot of pt behind dwill, i like brooks alot but childress hasnt been good at all since returning to the league from overseas but hopefully he can turn it around...evans is really being over rated by alot of nets fans the man can grab boards n plays hard on D although him playing hard on D does not make him a great defender he just gives effort and blatche is well a nut case he had 1 good season 2 yrs ago but i think his stats were higher because he was on the worst team in the league! i think they need a legit back up center! i dont no much about their rookie tetelovic or whatever his name is but everyone seems to be very high on him i think the best chance for the nets to compete this year would be that the rookie really impresses and can take the starting spot with crash coming off the bench!

----im not trying to be a hater on the nets bc i love dwill but i really dont see them being as good as everyone thinks (mostly nets fans) although they wont be bad as they have been the past few seasons!

just wish the season would play out and people can see how the pieces fit together before all these signings and trades are making the nets instant contenders....im not a net fan and yet it seems like most forget how their returning starters really didnt get much playing time together so they'll need to gel as well as all the new pieces around them!

Once Wallace got traded to the Nets last year he started playing a lot better then he did with Portland. In 16 game w/Nets he averaged 15ppg/7reb/3apg/1.4steels.......That is very good. Not really much of a decline. Playing with D-will helps a lot too.

Look at JJ's stats the last 2 seasons. Last season was better then the year before. So he is not declining as rapidly as you think. Still a top 5 SG in the NBA. Also playing with the Hawks he did not have a very good playmaking PG in Teague. Now he has D-will dont you think that helps him get more open shots and less "iso-joe"?

Lopez will be better then decent as long as he can revert back to his first 2 seasons when he got 8.5 rebounds per game and averaged 18-20ppg. I think his rebounding has gotten much worse the last 2 years because he had Mono which made him lose muscle and also had foot problems. Guy is very talented he is certainly capable of posting 20/9. Not bad for 3rd best player.

The bench wont be GREAT, but it's a nice bench with potential. Watson played nice for the Bulls last year. Not many back up PGs better than him. Brooks had a very good rookie season last year and flashed awesome scoring skills. He can be a Jamaal Crawford type off the bench but has much better passing skills. Teletovic is an unknown in the NBA, but we have reason to be excited. 6-10 who is great from 3 point range and led all of the Euro league in scoring last season. ANDRAY BLATCH....if he gets his head straight will be an asset off the bench. Has a lot of talent.

They aren't the same team by any means. I don't think they will be as good as everyone thinks they will be though. Sure they'll make the playoffs easily, but they aren't a top 4 seed in my opinion, I predict the best they do is 5th seed.

Appreciate it, it was unfortunate that that league fell apart. Maybe it can form back again after 2k13 comes out.


but..... i dont see the nets being that great i mean dwill is awesome but jj is on the decline as is wallace, hump is a beast and lopez we'll he's a decent C!

I think "on the decline" is a strong statement, I think you'll really have to see how guys like JJ and Wallace play with DWill before you can officially say theyre on the decline. Now were their numbers sub par from seasons past? Yes of course, but I still see JJ and Wallace as major factors for the team this season. Wallace in his limited games with NJ looked excellent, he was sharp on defense and was actually scoring efficiently, he had a bad game against Melo but that was more about the lack of total team defense than his fault. JJ has never really had a chance to play with an elite point guard during his greater playing days, I think DWill will totally set him up to be a more efficient as well as more consistent player. He's a great spot up shooter but can also create his own shot, I think he fits extremely well with this team. I would comment further on Lopez but Ill go into a very long rant, so to save you some time in reading this. Watch how he plays this season, I promise you he will shock you.


the bench i really dont think is that great watson is ok but wont get alot of pt behind dwill, i like brooks alot but childress hasnt been good at all since returning to the league from overseas but hopefully he can turn it around...evans is really being over rated by alot of nets fans the man can grab boards n plays hard on D although him playing hard on D does not make him a great defender he just gives effort and blatche is well a nut case he had 1 good season 2 yrs ago but i think his stats were higher because he was on the worst team in the league! i think they need a legit back up center! i dont no much about their rookie tetelovic or whatever his name is but everyone seems to be very high on him i think the best chance for the nets to compete this year would be that the rookie really impresses and can take the starting spot with crash coming off the bench!

I think the bench is a bit underrated to be honest, and I'm saying this in the least bias way I can. We have the ability to have some of the best scoring off the bench in the league with the likes of CJ, Marshon, Blatche (headcase but there is no doubting he can score), and Teletovic. All of which have the capability of giving you a scoring outburst or set up a scoring outburst (in CJ Watsons case). We do need a big man that can play D, I have never neglected that, and that might be the reason we fall short this year in the playoffs, but to be just one simple piece like that away from having a shot is quite interesting for the future.


----im not trying to be a hater on the nets bc i love dwill but i really dont see them being as good as everyone thinks (mostly nets fans) although they wont be bad as they have been the past few seasons!

I dont think you're being a hater, its not easy to judge a team that hasnt played yet, so I appreciate you realizing that this team does have some potential (unlike many others). This team can and will shock a lot of people, I'm not saying they'll be representing the East this year, but I do think that they can be one of the better teams in the East.

It all comes down to how it all plays out, and its a wait and see process, I just personally wouldn't sleep on them fan or not.

I think we'll be somewhere between 4 and 6 but again like I said above, I wouldn't be shocked if they turned out to be a 2 or 3 seed. Thats not simply because they're my team but more so my view on how well they could gel together, by forming one of the more offensively elite teams.
