He went over there because Atlanta told him to go get an offer as a restricted and they said they'd match it. He didn't want them to match a deal, and the Hawks said they wouldn't facilitate a sign-and-trade. Last summer, nobody was willing to give him MLE money last summer so he stayed with Olympiakos. More teams will have cash this summer so I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the kind of offer that would lure him back, especially given how well he has been playing in Athens. He could be an interesting player as a third player mid-money signing for Miami if they could come away with re-signing Wade and attracting Amare or Bosh. Minnesota obviously needs wing players capable of getting on the floor for a team of Olympiakos' caliber. If Cleveland keeps LeBron, they might be intrigued by his length and abilities for the MLE.

NBA teams wanted him. He was

NBA teams wanted him. He was just a restricted free agent and Atlanta didn't want to give him what he wanted and other teams were only going to offer him mid level. Which he wanted more. Atlanta still owns his rights. So if they were to lose Joe Johnson through free agency, I could see them try and resign him. Move Crawford to the starting 2 and and have Childress play the roll that Crawford is doing now.
