Default Billups ?

i read the last few days that he can't stay in LA because financial inconveniant (must resign for cheaper contract), and he seems to not want to go to knicks for that reason too.

I think he can be a really good backup pg for lowry, and a leader in the lockerroom.

For part of the MLE for 3 years, 1st garanted, 2nd team option, 3rd player option. at 3M/yr.

what do you think ?

We need a vet at that position. I would be down for it. He could give us about 15-18 mins a game at PG and SG.

why not to get a real veteran type leader is always great, I think it makes a huge difference especially with keeping younger players making sure they turn into true professionals

He's said a few times he's only interested in contending teams.

Can't have multiple options in a contract. It's either team or player option, that's it.

guy left TO as soon as he got the chance when he first started, no sense in changing that now that he's an old vet

NO! He was done last year. DONE! So over the hill. At this point it's comical. Like Weekend at Bernie's.

when a guy is this DONE and still in the league there's really only 2 reasons why
1) he wants to win another championship
2) he's so broke he needs the money

other than that he's got nothing to prove and nothing to improve in regards to the game

unless he really needs the money he's not coming here

Well, it's the Pistons, he's basically coming home. He will likely have a player-coach type role in reality, a vet leader, and in a year or two they will retire his jersey and he will transition into the organization as a coach or an executive.

As a bonus, they are clearly looking to win and they look on their way to being very good.
They'll likely make the playoffs and be that proverbial "team that no one wants to play", the dangerous defensive minded low seed team.

I think it's a pretty attractive situation for Billups.
