Josh Childress

  1. On Aaron Brooks and life after Steve Nash in Phoenix

    Oct 12, 2011, 3:33 PM EST

    Aaron Brooks

    Steve Nash has defined the Phoenix Suns franchise since the summer of 2004, but every passing day brings the Suns that much closer to parting with their only remaining star. Joe Johnson, Shawn Marion, and Amar’e Stoudemire have all come and gone, and the last great remnant of the Suns team that embarked on Seven…

  2. Suns’ Childress doesn’t get NBA players talking Europe

    Olympiacos' Josh Childress (C) shots bet

    Josh Childress has been there — when the Atlanta Hawks tried to lowball him, he took a three-year deal to go play for Olympiacos in Greece. Childress has played at Europe in his prime. He has done what everyone is talking about. He sees a lot of guys — Ty Lawson is the latest, joining…

  3. Video: Suns’ Childress surprises sleepwalking Timberwolves

    It is dangerous to make big, sweeping generalizations off of one play (or even one game). But the Timberwolves have mentally packed it in. They have lost a dozen in a row and are now half a game back of Cleveland for the worst record in the league. Think about that — Cleveland had a…

  4. Did Jared Dudley get his 9th dunk of the season? His teammates vote ‘no.’

    With the Suns all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, all that’s left to work towards this season are things that may, to the outside world, seem frivolous. But despite the fact that the season will end for Phoenix on April 13, Jared Dudley still has something to accomplish. Dudley is an intelligent, high-energy player…

  5. Report: Josh Childress is on the block

    Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns

    The Phoenix Suns made a significant trade yesterday, moving Jason Richardson, arguably their second best player, along with the albatross contract of Hedo Turkoglu and Earl Clark to acquire Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat and a first round draft pick. If reports are on target, they are not through dealing. Marc Stein of ESPN reports that…

  6. Cavs fans had nothing on fans in Greece, just ask Josh Childress

    There was a lot of anger in Cleveland last night, a lot of “a—hole” chants and a handful of people tossed from the building. It reminded the Suns Josh Childress of Greece (where he played the last two seasons). Well, not really, the Cavaliers fans were not angry enough and did not throw explosives or…

  7. Josh Childress channeling his inner Kobe, playing with splint on finger

    Childress_layup

    Josh Childress is out on the court for the Suns, he’s trying. He’s struggling, really only taking shots right at the rim (2.7 per game) and ignoring jumpers or threes (0.6 per game) unless he has to take them. It’s a far cry from the Childress who was a solid outside shooter in Atlanta before…

  8. Steve Nash wouldn’t blame you if you said Phoenix would miss the playoffs

    Last season ended with the Suns in the Western Conference finals. Right now, on the eve of the next season, talk around the Suns is about progress and getting on the right page as the season starts. Look at what Nash told Seth Pollack of SB Nation. “To be honest, if I was outside this…

  9. Josh Childress breaks fingertip, out at least one week

    Jchildress

    At least in Greece when something like this happened he could numb the pain with Ouzo… The Suns Josh Childress fractured the fingertip on the index finger of his right hand (his shooting hand) during the Suns Tuesday night exhibition game against the Warriors, according to the Associated Press. He will sit out a week,…

  10. NBA Season Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 18, 2010, 12:50 PM EST

    Nash_Pass2

    Last season: 54-28, as they returned to the style that the roster was built for — seven seconds or less. Well, really, it was more like 12 seconds or less as they utilized a lot of secondary options in the transition and drag screens, but the philosophy was the same. The rode that style to…

  11. Steve Nash says all the right things about taking on a challenge

    Aug 27, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Steve Nash knew when he signed an extension with the Phoenix Suns last summer — two years, $22 million, taking him up to the summer of 2012 — that it might not happen. He didn’t chase the ring, he didn’t go to New York, he took the money from a franchise he loves. So while…

  12. Report: Suns close to acquiring Turkoglu, Childress in trades

    Jul 11, 2010, 11:00 PM EST

    Well, this is certainly… something.  Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Phoenix Suns are close to two separate deals to acquire two small forwards at opposite ends of their careers, both with sizable contracts.  First up, hailing from Turkey and loving pizza, Hedo Turkoglu and your $43 million in remaining contract, head…

  13. Josh Childress is about to return to America cloaked in glory. And money.

    Jul 3, 2010, 2:37 PM EST

    In a few days, LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade will figure out their dance partners. (Let us hope it is only a few days.) Then Joe Johnson will finally accept the max deal with Atlanta we all know he is going to take. And then Josh Childress’ phone is going to start ringing.…

  14. Report: Josh Childress about to get offer from Washington Wizards

    Jun 24, 2010, 2:36 PM EST

    The ‘fro may be back. Two years ago, Josh Childress couldn’t get a team to make him a offer, one to compete with what he considered an undersized one from Atlanta. It wasn’t because other teams didn’t want him — he may have been the best sixth man in the game — but those teams…

  15. Josh Childress expected to return to Hawks next season

    May 7, 2010, 9:04 AM EST

    While his former teammates struggle to find a way to deal with Dwight Howard, Vince Carter and the rest of the Orlando Magic, Josh Childress is basking in the limelight in Paris. His team, Olympiacos, is in the EuroLeague Final Four taking place this weekend in the city of lights. He is a key part…

  16. Mavericks work out Von Wafer, but nothing formal yet

    Feb 20, 2010, 10:23 AM EST

    UPDATE: The Mavs have also brought in Rashad McCants for a look-see. Von Wafer’s been fluttering around the outskirts of the league after returning from Olympiakos in Greece (who you’ll remember as the team former-Hawk Josh Childress plays for). He was rumored to sign with Houston, who he was with last season, then Memphis, and…
