Chauncey Billups

  1. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

    DeAndre Jordan

    Last season: The Clippers finished the regular season with a franchise best 56 wins, good enough for the fourth seed in the West and home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs over the Memphis Grizzlies. L.A. went up two games to none in the series, before Memphis came back to win the…

  2. Brandon Jennings to miss start of season with tooth injury

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:42 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups, Brandon Jennings, Maurice Cheeks

    It seems the Pistons suddenly have a bigger backcourt problem than deciding their starting shooting guard. Combo guard Rodney Stuckey is already out with a broken finger. Though Maurice Cheeks hopes Stuckey will return in time for the Oct. 30 opener against the Wizards, according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, that seems…

  3. Pistons’ Stuckey breaks thumb, to have surgery Friday, out indefinitely

    Oct 10, 2013, 7:54 PM EST

    Rodney Stuckey

    Just a day ago, Pistons coach Mo Cheeks was giving Chauncey Billups the start at the two and saying Rodney Stuckey would be getting the chance to steal that job. Stuckey had been the best of the three defensively, Cheeks said. Meanwhile rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was left without a chair when the music stopped. (Actually,…

  4. Chauncey Billups gets seat in Pistons shooting guard musical chairs, leaves Kentavious Caldwell-Pope standing

    Oct 9, 2013, 4:10 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups

    Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said Rodney Stuckey and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope were frontrunners to start at shooting guard. At least that’s how it was paraphrased in an MLive report. Either something was lost in translation, or Cheeks had a change of heart. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: After naming Chauncey Billups the starter at…

  5. Pistons seemingly narrow starting shooting guard options to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey

    Oct 7, 2013, 6:40 PM EST

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey

    The Pistons have essentially four starters locked: Brandon Jennings at point guard, Josh Smith at small forward, Greg Monroe at power forward and Andre Drummond at center. That leaves shooting guard, where there seemed to be several contenders. Chauncey Billups Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Kyle Singler Rodney Stuckey Now, halve that list, Detroit coach Maurice Cheeks indicates.…

  6. Thomas Robinson is ‘pissed off’

    Oct 4, 2013, 11:15 AM EST

    Kevin McHale, Thomas Robinson

    Thomas Robinson, when the season begins, will be playing for his third team in two years. He was drafted by the Kings, traded mid-season to the Rockets and traded again in the offseason to the Trail Blazers. The last top-five pick to play for so many teams in his first two years was drafted in…

    Andre Drummond

    Last season: The Pistons went 29-53, their fifth straight losing season and fourth straight season outside the playoffs. Andre Drummond emerged as a possible franchise player, producing at elite levels to match his impressive physical profile. Greg Monroe also operated at a near-All Star level for the second straight season, though somewhat ignores his defensive…

  8. Taking stab at Pistons starters… Caldwell-Pope in mix?

    Aug 26, 2013, 10:33 AM EST

    2013 NBA Draft

    Maurice Cheeks has one of the tougher coaching jobs in the NBA this season. While the NBA zigged toward efficiency and advanced stats, Joe Dumars zagged and built a roster with players other teams were hesitant on — Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings mainly. The Pistons got better but the question is how much better?…

  9. Andre Drummond being leader, getting Pistons rookies into town early

    Aug 21, 2013, 11:07 AM EST

    Andre Drummond

    Andre Drummond, team leader. It’s just his second season and Detroit has a locker room with veterans such as Chauncey Billups and Josh Smith, but it has been Drummond reaching out to the Pistons rookies and telling Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Tony Mitchell, and Peyton Siva to come to Detroit early for pre-camp workouts, reports the Pistons…

  10. Pistons reveal ‘Motor City’ alternate uniforms

    Aug 14, 2013, 12:49 PM EST

    motorcityfront

    The Pistons have worn red, white and blue uniforms for years and years. It’s become a classic look for one of the NBA’s flagship franchises. Aside from a brief – and misguided – foray into teal during the 90s, the Pistons have remained true to that color scheme, a point of pride for Detroit fans.…

  11. Brandon Jennings says Pistons could become Lob City, pledges to change his game

    Aug 6, 2013, 3:10 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    As he sat down for his new conference to introduce Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars muttered, “Oh my god.” I don’t know what Dumars was referring to at that moment, but I cant think of a better way to describe the experiment he’s conducting with the Pistons. Jennings at point guard with Josh Smith, Greg Monroe…

  12. Report: Pistons sign Louisville PG Peyton Siva

    Aug 5, 2013, 12:27 PM EST

    Peyton Siva, Phil Pressey

    Peyton Siva had a good NBA Summer League down in Orlando — he showed the skills that helped him lead Louisville to the national championship. He was a good floor general, not one with a great jump shot but a guy who just seemed to make plays when they were needed. Plus he can defend.…

  13. Billups happy to be in Detroit and playing the point again

    Jul 31, 2013, 1:36 PM EST

    billups pistons

    The Clippers have the best point guard, the best floor general in the game in Chris Paul. For the past couple seasons they had the up-and-coming Eric Bledsoe behind him. Which meant Chauncey Billups was at the two spot. He was the good teammate and did it, but it was not his preference. Throw in…

  14. Corey Maggette, front office executive? That’s what he wants.

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:14 PM EST

    Corey Maggette

    Certain guys you see going through the NBA and you think, “that guy could move into the front office seamlessly. Chauncey Billups is a guy right now that fits that mold and he could get a shot with the Pistons. Corey Maggette? He wants it to happen and has taken steps that way, according to…

  15. Behind the scenes with Chauncey Billups during his return to the Pistons (VIDEO)

    Jul 28, 2013, 10:30 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    Chauncey Billups returned to the Pistons in free agency, the team where he made a name for himself after winning a Finals MVP award back in 2004. Billups was traded away in the ill-fated deal that brought Allen Iverson to Detroit in 2009, but he’s back to finish his career in the place where he…

  16. Pistons might keep Chauncey Billups around after this season… in the front office

    Jul 28, 2013, 12:29 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    When the Detroit Pistons brought back Chauncey Billups on a two-year contract — $2.5 million a year with a team option on the second year — there were questions about the move in some corners. But in the short term for a growing team, I like it. Billups doesn’t bring a whole lot on the…

  17. Chauncey Billups: Joe Dumars apologized to me

    Jul 17, 2013, 5:25 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    Chauncey Billups and Joe Dumars had a falling out after the latter traded the former to the Nuggets in 2008. Billups wanted to retire in Detroit, and though his hometown Nuggets weren’t a completely undesirable destination, he just signed a long-term extension with the Pistons. But those ingredients alone don’t warrant bitterness. Players getting traded…

  18. Chauncey Billups: I expect to start at point guard for Pistons

    Jul 16, 2013, 4:28 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    Brandon Knight has started at point guard the last two seasons for the Pistons, though he hasn’t played particularly well. Rodney Stuckey started at the position the two years prior, again struggling as a playmaker, which is why Knight replaced him. Before that, Chauncey Billups manned the position for seven seasons, doing an exceptional job,…

  19. Pistons won’t amnesty Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:36 PM EST

    Charlie Villanueva

    The Pistons already made their big move – signing Josh Smith – and their small moves (signing Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome and re-signing Will Bynum). They might still have a little cap room left to make another small signing, but they’re already over the roster limit including their draft picks, so adding the caliber…

  20. Report: Chauncey Billups agrees to two-year deal to return to the Pistons

    Jul 11, 2013, 8:36 AM EST

    Four years after being traded away from the team he led to an NBA title back in 2004, Chauncey Billups has agreed to return home. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Chauncey Billups has reached agreement on a two-year contract to return to the Detroit Pistons, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The deal will be worth $5…

  21. Pistons will look at Calderon, others to bring point guard depth

    Chauncey_Billups_with_Pistons_20130704153449_320_240

    Brandon Knight is the starting point guard in Detroit and that is not likely to change next season. But one of the Pistons’ goals of the off-season was to get some depth at the position. They have a few targets, reports the Detroit News, from the realistic to bringing back some old friends. The Pistons…

  22. Chauncey Billups says he wants to play two more years

    Jul 4, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    When Chauncey Billups went down with an Achilles Tendon injury couple seasons ago, it seemed like the end of his career. He wouldn’t let it be — he was going to leave the NBA on his own terms. He put in the grueling rehab work and got back on the court for the Clippers last…

  23. J.J. Redick-Jared Dudley trade might squeeze Chauncey Billups off Clippers

    Jul 2, 2013, 10:26 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups, Ty Lawson

    Chauncey Billups – when healthy, which wasn’t very often – started at shooting guard for the Clippers the last two years. Now that the Clippers have upgraded their wing positions by trading for J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley, Billups, a free agent, might no longer fit in Los Angeles. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:…

  24. Jose Calderon meeting with Kings, one of many suitors

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:44 PM EST

    Looks more like football as Toronto Raptors' Calderon races Sacramento Kings' Robinson up the court in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    When the Pistons traded for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract, they immediately stressed they didn’t view him as a one-year rental. After years of subpar point guard play since they traded Chauncey Billups, Calderon brought playmaking skills to the position Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey couldn’t come close to matching. But Calderon and Andre…

  25. Report: Pistons ready to make Josh Smith a big offer

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:49 AM EST

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Joe Dumars has shown he’ll strike quickly to get the players he wants, price be darned. Sometimes, that means getting Chauncey Billups. Other times, the result is Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva. Dumars appears to be going full speed ahead to get his man again. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Detroit Pistons general manager Joe…
