Cleveland Cavaliers Have Interest in Chauncey Billups

Not long after the news surfaced that veteran point guard Chauncey Billups would like to play two more seasons in the NBA, we have learned that he is receiving interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Billups would serve as nothing more than a mentor to rising star Kyrie Irving, but that could prove to be a valuable asset to the young man as he looks to grow and mature in his career.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer had the report.

You may think that Billups would want to play for a contender with what little time he has left in his career, but he could also just look to pick up as much money as possible before hanging it up. He also reportedly has interest from the  Spurs, Mavericks, Pistons, Kings, Nets and Timberwolves.

Free agency kicked off just after midnight on Monday, so be sure to stay tuned to throughout the free agency period as we keep you up to date with the latest news and rumors from around the league.
