Josh Childress Is Returning To Olympiakos

Sekou Smith has the quotes:
"I still have some unfinished business to tend to. I definitely have unfinished business in Greece."

"When I left Greece to come back [here to the U.S.], I had it in my head that was going back to Greece no mater what. Then when I got home and had my feet on the ground for a couple of days, I really wanted to explore my options and see what was out there. It was 50-50 from there."

"My team did well, but there’s no question, I didn’t have the year I wanted to have, and with that being said, I have some serious work left to do in Athens. That was part of my decision to go back, as well."
Best case scenario? Jeff Teague proves a useful NBA player this season and the Hawks use the rights to Childress as a sweetener to get some team to take the final year of Jamal Crawford's contract.

Worst case scenario? The Hawks lose the rights to Childress for nothing and the cost of the loss is likely underrated as, by the time it comes to pass, most everyone has gotten over the shock of the possibility of it happening.
