Goodbye Atlanta, Hello Greece

Ryan GaydosSenior Analyst IJuly 23, 2008

Josh Childress will follow the likes of Juan Carlos Navarro, Primoz Brecec, Carlos Delfino, and Bostjian Nachbar, as Childress will go over to Europe to play basketball next season instead of playing for the Atlanta Hawks.

Childress will sign a three-year deal worth up to $20 million dollars to play for Greece's Olympiakos team. Childress had a decent season last year,scoring 11.8 points per game with 5.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists.

Team Olympiakos finished second to rival team Panathinaikos. But with new summer transfers and CSKA Moscow star Theodoros Papaloukas, Olympiakos looks to win their league this season.
