The Brooklyn Nets came to terms on a one-year deal with Josh Childress on Tuesday.

The Brooklyn Nets have reportedly come to terms on a one-year contract with Josh Childress, according to Howard Beck.

The Nets have been extremely active in free agency since the start of it back on July 1, and have continued that trend throughout the summer. Childress certainly isn't the household name that some of his teammates are, but he's shown the ability to be productive in the NBA.

The ex-Atlanta Hawk had some solid years from 2005-2008 when he was averaging double digits in points per game. After playing in Greece for two years, Childress returned to join the Phoenix Suns for the past two campaigns.

His numbers dropped off significantly with just three starts in 88 games. In 2011-12, Childress averaged just 2.9 points per contest.

The 6'8'', 210-pound small forward will at least provide some competition in camp and perhaps stick on the final roster as a reserve with a strong showing.
