Found June 02, 2012 on That NBA Lottery Pick:

After playing a couple season overseas, Josh Childress played for the Phoenix Suns this season and put together a solid year.

However during this season, he set a dubious record which Paul Corro of the Arizona Republic informed the world about:
Childress set the NBA record for most minutes played in a season without making a free throw.
In his defense or to his discredit, Childress only had two chances. Childress played 491 minutes this season but only drew a shooting foul once, when he rebounded a Robin Lopez miss on Feb. 1 in New Orleans and got fouled by Jason Smith on the putback. The 78 percent career free throw shooter missed both tries.
"I tried to go to the line last night," Childress said a day after the season finale, acknowledging he was aware of the "0" under "FTM."
The last two players to hold that dubious honor? Luke Walton and Dominic McGuire.
