The Suns have exercised their amnesty provision on Josh Childress.
Childress flopped after signing a five-year, $30 million deal two years ago, of which Phoenix is still on the hook for over $21 million. Waiving Childress apparently enabled the Suns' successful waiver claim for Luis Scola, and may have cleared up additional cap space for offers to free agent SGs Courtney Lee or O.J. Mayo.
The Suns have submitted a successful waiver claim for Luis Scola.
The deal must be three years and worth at least $10 million to offset the unguaranteed portion of Scola's deal with the Rockets, who recently waived him. It's a sneaky pickup for the Suns, who otherwise had only Channing Frye (who could miss the start of the season with a shoulder injury), Hakim Warrick and Markieff Morris at PF.

Am I the only one that saw the paycheck Jeffries got on that Felton trade? The man got paid !!! If I was him, I would walk back to NY from Portland and still be happy...

RT @Gambo620: Grant Hill is going to the Clippers
^ Agreed, Hill is a d*ck to the Knicks.
Kris Humphries signed a 24 million contract for 2 years with the Nets.
Talk about being overpaided....NBA fails.
