It seems like forever ago that point guard Chauncey Billups burst on to the scene with the Detroit Pistons and helped to win the team an NBA Championship over the Los Angeles Lakers and now he is looking to finish his career with the franchise that he helped to resurrect.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the Detroit Pistons and the veteran guard have agreed to a two-year deal.
After being traded from the Pistons to the Denver Nuggets in the 2008-09 season, Detroit began to rapidly decline. The likes of Billups, Ben Wallace and Rip Hamilton were no longer to keep them atop the Eastern Conference and the franchise quickly fell from relevancy. Now, they are looking to work their way back.
In Detroit, Billups is expected to come off of the bench and serve in the Pistons’ back court rotation as he helps to mentor young guard Brandon Knight.
Throughout his successful career, Billups has been named a five-time All-Star and NBA Finals MVP.
