Josh Childress to sign with the Wizards
Josh Childress is going to sign his new contract with the Washington Wizards according to redplanet.gr. He has been negotiatiing with the Wizards the last few days and the contract will soon be signed. There should be an official anouncement by both Olympiakos and the Wizards to cover this. The main point of negotiation is whether the contract will be for 4 or 5 seasons.
The tragic conclusion of the Greek League finals might have been a bit too much for Chidlress, who is not used to such spectacles. Childress will be leaving Greece and Europe after 2 seasons and also leaving a 5.2 million euros contract behind. Effectively this move loosens up a bit the finances of Olympiakos and also it frees one foreign player spot. Childress averaged 15.2 points 4.8 revounds and 1.9 assists in 20 games in the Euroleague and also 15.8 points 5.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 31 games in the Greek A1 league.
