He can't be back in Detroit because he never left. Boo.

 

lol well he had opted out... :|

 

 

That's better. Now go eat your supper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Screw that. Billups is going to be 31 by the start of the season. He's not worth that kind of commitment. He'll just be the latest addition to contracts that are going to look really bad halfway through (see Vince Carter)

It looks like the Heat are pushing hard for Steve Blake. I wouldn't mind a Jwill/Steve Blake combonation at PG.

 

I didn't want Billups in a Heat uniform anyway. Yeah he's a great player, but it would have been wierd.

Fantastic logic right there.

Maybe Not.

 

Chauncey Billups' agent refuted media reports that his client had agreed to a contract that could be five years and worth $60 million.

 

"This is a vicious rumor," Andy Miller, Billups' agent, told The Detroit Free Press. "It's entirely untrue. We have not reached an agreement. I don't know what stage we're at. We're having ongoing discussions, and I don't believe that we're on the verge of signing an agreement anytime today by any stretch of the imagination."

 

The Associated Press and some Detroit-area media outlets had reported that Billups and the Pistons had agreed to a five-year contract. According to the Associated Press, its source, who requested anonymity because of league rules preventing contract announcements before July 11, said the deal is worth $46 million guaranteed over four years and the fifth year is a team option.

 

Billups had become an unrestricted free agent last month after opting out of the last year of a six-year contract.

 

Joe Dumars, the Pistons' president of basketball operations, said shortly after the team was eliminated from the conference finals by the Cleveland Cavaliers that his top priority was re-signing Billups.

 

The 6-foot-3, 202-pound All-Star said he would prefer to stay with Detroit and expected to be back if the team could match any other team's best offer.

 

Billups, 30, who played with the Celtics, Denver, Orlando and Minnesota in his first four seasons, was selected the NBA Finals MVP in 2004 when Detroit won the championship. He was an All-Star in each of the next two seasons.

 

He averaged 17 points and 7.2 assists in 70 games last season and 14.5 points and 5.3 assists over his nine-year career. But Billups struggled in the playoffs each of the past two seasons, and averaged 15.3 points, 3.5 assists and 3.8 turnovers in the Eastern finals against the Cavs.

wow boo ESPN newsthen! lol

 

Maybe Riley is talking to Billups? Who knows...

 

Anyone who thinks Billups on the heat is 'weird"... umm... come on dude. He'd be the great 3rd scoring option we want and need, and he'd fill a need at pg at the same time. Now, I agree we shouldn't throw crazy money at him, but for the right price, why wouldn't you want him in a Heat uniform?
