Last week we had reported that the Nets were interested in Josh Childress, and then decided to work him out this week.
Well, they finally came to their senses and signed Childress to a 1 year deal.
Brooklyn is going to be fun to watch this season.
The Brooklyn Nets have signed veteran forward Josh Childress.
Nets general manager Billy King announced the signing Thursday. While terms were not disclosed, Childress got a one-year, non-guaranteed contract.

The odd lighting in Madison Square Garden makes it obvious to a TV viewer that the Knicks are playing at home. Even the Charlotte Hornets once had a instantly recognizable, if tacky, court design with...

With that still stuck...
After a huge offseason for the Brooklyn Nets, they go from a 21 win team in 2011-2012, to a playoff contender in 2012-2013. However, their coach, Avery Johnson, seems to think they can compete with the Celtics and Heat for a chance to go to the NBA Finals.
