The Suns also have a choice of whether to continue with the 38-year-old point guard who seeks a three-year contract and could get $10 million annually elsewhere. A contract commitment to Nash limits what else the Suns could do in free agency, although they could free up more space if they use an amnesty clause on Josh Childress (owed $21 million over the next three years regardless but an amnesty claim takes him off the Suns' books for cap purposes).

Childress will turn 29 next month but still believes there is a role for him with Phoenix. "Coach (Alvin Gentry) said as much," Childress said. "Once again, I'm not a GM and I'm not a coach. I can't really discuss what that role is. A lot of it will depend on what direction the team goes. I love it here. Obviously, the on-the-court stuff hasn't been the best for me. The organization has been wonderful. The city, the fans. If the on-court stuff can be taken care of, it'd be ideal." Arizona Republic

With $21 million over three years remaining on his deal, Childress will remain a candidate after averaging 2.9 points and 2.8 rebounds in 34 appearances this season. "No question," Childress said of the amnesty possibility. "I'm not worried about it. I really have to focus on Josh and not worry about things that are out of my control." Arizona Republic

Greece? You’ll find legitimate NBA players considering Somalia before they entertain offers from the only two teams in Greece that can be players in the game: Olympiakos and Panathinaikos. Those two teams were a combined 57-5 in league play last season. The third place team was 16-10. “It’s ironic,’’ says agent Marc Cornstein of Pinnacle Hoops, who has extensive experience placing players in Europe. “(Olympiakos and Panathinaikos) were in the forefront with Childress and Kleiza. They were very aggressive in the past. But they are lagging because of the economic climate over there. It’s very quiet.” HoopsHype

Josh Childress on why he’d not advise players to play in Europe: “Well when I say I would not advise it, it’s under the premise that guys are not fully informed. I’m not saying it’s a bad idea. I did it for two years, it was a great situation for me, it was a great learning experience, but I think that for a bulk of the guys, you need to be informed. You need to make sure you have insurance, you need to just make sure you’re covered on all bases.” Sports Radio Interviews
