Josh Childress Uncertain about Return to NBA
This season, "I've been a lot more comfortable, and I think my play shows that. I never really changed my style of play. Mostly, I've improved a lot mentally. I've learned to let the game come to me more."
Childress has an opt-out clause in his contract that will allow him to return to the NBA this summer with no penalty or buyout. That, naturally, has led to rampant speculation in basketball-mad Greece that he'll be back in the States this fall. Greek journalists interviewed here were virtually unanimous in predicting that he will.
Thursday, Childress dealt with the inevitable questions with aplomb.
"I'll decide by July 15," he said, referring to his deadline for terminating his contract. "But right now, I have a lot to accomplish still -- this tournament, and then the rest of the season in the Greek league."
