Josh Childress Net Worth $12 Million
Childress, who in his youth was not only a basketballer, but also an avid volleyball player, began his basketball career at Mayfar High School in Lakewood, California; it should be noted that among other things he was invited to the McDonald’s All-American Game. After his high school time he moved to the prestigious Stanford University, where he was active until 2004.
Concerning his professional career, Josh was selected sixth in the first round of the NBA Draft in 2004 by the Atlanta Hawks. Alongside Josh Smith, with whom he played in the Atlanta Hawks, Childress was considered one of the most promising talents of the NBA Draft that year. During his first professional season, he became a leading player in the team and was able to average 10.1 points, and was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team. Also in the following few years Childress would steadily improve and remain an integral part of the Hawks. Consequently, everyone was surprised by the news that he had signed a 3-year contract with the highly ambitious Greek club Olympiacos in 2008. This contract increased the net worth of Josh Childress by $20 million, plus promises of a house, a car and the cost of his agents, all of which were paid by Olympiacos. Furthermore, he even received an advertising contract with the famous sportswear manufacturer Nike. Childress led the new team to the final of the ULEB Euro League, which they lost 86:68 against FC Barcelona. However, after two years spent in Europe, Childress returned to the NBA.
Back in the US, he signed a contract with the Phoenix Suns in 2010, but after two seasons Luis Scola acquired the amnestied right, and Josh was released. The same year he signed to the Brooklyn Nets for the 2012 – 2013 season, yet Childress was not as integral a part of the rotation as had been hoped, and at the end of 2012, his contract was not renewed. Josh was then signed but released almost immediately by NBA teams the Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards, and New Orleans Pelicans, so in 2014, he signed a contract with the Australian team the Sydney Kings and played in NBL for two seasons, suffering several injuries and a suspension, but generally playing well, and building his net worth.
In 2016, the player decided to go back to USA and signed with Texas Legends in the NBA Development League.
Finally, in the personal life of the professional basketball player, Josh keeps it private, and he does not reveal any facts about his marital status or any children.
