Josh Childress

The Brooklyn Nets have requested waivers on forward Josh Childress, it was announced tonight by General Manager Billy King.

Childress, who signed as a free agent with Brooklyn on September 13, 2012, appeared in 14 games for the Nets, averaging 1.0 points and 1.1 rebounds in 7.1 minutes per game.

According to Howard Beck of the New York Times via Twitter, “Childress was waived at his own request. He didn’t see a role here and asked Billy King for his release before the game tonight. Childress had played just 9 minutes this month. He’s hoping to catch on somewhere else.”
