Bring in Josh Childress


According to this article,  Childress's Greek team is looking to ship him out due to money problems. ESPN Insider is reporting that since the Hawks want to make sure they have enough to sign Joe Johnson, they will not be looking to bring Childress back. The report also says Childress would like to play for another team.

So why not bring him in?

I'm not to sure of what he kind of changes he's made to his game since being out of the league, but I'm sure he's a quick athletic wing player. Maybe not the TAD player that we are looking for in the Draft, but he certainly improved his mid and 3pt game after coming into the NBA and I believe he would be a perfect fit running the break along side John Wall.

We all know this guy can Jam. From all the highlights i've seen from his time in Greece, he continued to dominate by getting to the rim and finishing. He does this well on the break, as well as through the pick and pop.

He's smart. Three years at Stanford. STANFORD. His IQ isn't limited to the books, he has displayed patience and maturity during his time in the NBA. Along with his excellent athletic ability, including his huge 6'11" wingspan, Childress is a solid perimeter defender. That's something we're looking to address so why not bring in a still young but experienced guy like Childress, instead of taking a shot in the dark late in the draft.

All it would really take to pull this off is the Trade Exception we got for Drew Gooden. Childress is reportedly tendered at 4.6 million, which is right around where that exception is. Easy way to bring in solid talent without giving up picks.
