The Pistons are looking at veteran point guard Brevin Knight to back up Chauncey the one spot, but my guess is a deal with Knight won’t happen until Chauncey signs on the line. As we all know re-signing Chauncey is a must for the Pistons. If you have forgotten just how valuable Mr. Billups is to this team take a look at this video to jog your memory.
Where will Chauncey go?
The Pistons/Billups negotiations have started. Officially Chauncey can’t sign with anyone until July 11th, but thankfully for Detroit it looks like just about every team that was looking to sign Mr. Big Shot has filled their needs elsewhere. The Magic, who were looking at Billups, decided to sign Rashard Lewis, making it impossible to pay Billups what he has coming. Memphis picked up point guard Mike Conley Jr. in the draft. The Kings look like they may be interested in Chauncey but they need a sign and trade to get things done. The only team that has enough cap space is The Bucks, but I don’t know if they are willing to pay Billups when they can resign Mo Williams for half the price.
