The Hawks have lost a nice young player in Josh Childress. Where did he go? Olympiakos. He's getting $20 million for three years and will stray from being paid in our weak dollar. Maybe my friend Kellex should change the name of his site (The Sports Dollar) to the The Sports Euro. Five guys have gone from the best professional basketball league in the NBA, to all parts of the world (Russia, Spain, Greece, etc.).
The Euroleague should certainly be happy, their league will benefit from all these guys coming over (don't forget Brandon Jennings!). I will watch as much Euroleague as I can! My question is, right now these teams have an advantage because their curriencies are strong, but once that dies down, what happens to guys like Childress? I hope he got an early termination option, while he may be a star over there, he may want to come back to the NBA at some time.
Is anyone else Euroleague bound? I think there may be a couple more players, but I'm not sure who they are.
