Childress touring with Maccabi Haifa B.C

Joined the team for their NBA pre-season games and had a solid game in their first hit out. I wonder if it's a trial to join their team for the season? Interesting since the main reason he didn't return to Adelaide was due to money.

That is an Israeli second division team, right? Looking at the boxscore, it appears that 10 players were given more than 10 minutes of court time, with 8 of them being imports. Were they using the game as a trial run for imports, or they don't have import restrictions?

Not sure, but that is interesting. Maybe it was a trial run, but wouldn't second division be a little sub par for Childress and the others?

Haifa has been first division for eons but relegated this year. Every year they tour the US playing against NBA teams and generally getting flogged.

So it's likely they have just asked some locals to help them be a little more competitive I'm guessing.

No he isn't playing for Sydney. It's been said he was retiring or semi-retiring.
