Chauncey Billups

The Detroit Pistons are interested in bringing Chauncey Billups back to Detroit.

Billups, who played eight of his 17-year career in a Pistons’ uniform, has garnered interest from multiple teams over the past couple years, most notably the Cleveland Cavaliers showed interest in the former NBA Champion for their then-open General Manager position in 2016. Billups withdrew his name from the ring for that position.

The combo of former team star (Billups) and former Super-Agent (Tellum) combining to revamp an organization would not be the first of its kind, as Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka are currently doing the same thing in Los Angeles for the Lakers. But if their early success is an indicator of how things could be (Los Angeles has already surpassed their win totals from the previous three seasons), there’s hope for the Motor City to turn things around.

Chauncey apparently has heard the rumblings and has made his own statement regarding the Pistons position.

This is all very early in the process, so as more information is gathered, more will be revealed.
