When it came down to it, Chauncey Billups basically had two choices in this year’s free agency. Either take less money and join a title contender in a more limited role, or return to the Detroit Pistons, play the role of a veteran among a lot of young players and retire from basketball as a member of the team with which he won his only NBA championship of his career. He chose the latter.

While Billups still has a year or two worth of basketball left in his legs, it’s also a good time to consider what he wants to do when he retires. Well, if he wants to continue to work in the NBA, he won’t have to look for a job very long.

It seems that the Pistons would be interested in keeping Billups around even after his playing days are over. It’s uncertain what kind of front office job it would be and whether it would actually interest “Mr. Big Shot”, but as with all jobs, starting out in a front office position allows you to eventually move up the ranks and perhaps even become a general manager one day.
