Chauncey Billups

  1. Plenty of teams want in the Chauncey Billups sweepstakes

    Dec 12, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    All the cool kids want Chauncey Billups on their team. Dwight Howard — who has already complained the Magic don’t listen to his player advice — wants him, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN. One of “changes” Dwight Howard wants is signing of Chauncey. If DH12 stays, sources say he’ll urge Billups to spurn Heat and…

  2. Report: Bobcats will not bid on Chauncey Billups

    Dec 12, 2011, 12:40 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Turns out, Michael Jordan is not going to call Chauncey Billups bluff. Billups and his agent have made it very clear that if any teams that he doesn’t want to play for try to snatch him up on the waiver wire he will simply retire. Then there were rumors the Bobcats were going to put…

  3. Monday morning one liners (filled with rumors, signings)

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Don’t be shocked if the Chicago Bulls try to get in the Dwight Howard mix, but it is a longshot. If you read on thing today it should be this: Lakers trainer Gary Vitti…

  4. Timberwolves about to sign J.J. Barea to four-year deal

    Dec 12, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    J.J. Barea

    J.J. Barea, the undersized point guard who slashed his way through defenses (and angered Andrew Bynum), helping bring a championship to Dallas, is about to sign a four-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Dallas offered Barea just a one-year deal (they are trying to preserve cap space for next summer) so he will be jumping…

  5. Weekend NBA rumors and deals (constantly updated)

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  6. Knicks will sign Mike Bibby for the minimum salary, but keep their point guard options open

    Dec 10, 2011, 7:16 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby

    The New York Knicks have gone to great lengths to find a talented center counterpart for Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. They used the amnesty clause to waive veteran point guard Chauncey Billups, and blew $14 million in the process. They chipped in another $3 million just to ensure the passing of the three-team deal…

  7. Chauncey Billups out and out threatens any team thinking of claiming him off amnesty waivers

    Dec 10, 2011, 4:28 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    Here’s the thing. Everybody’s got their limit. Everybody’s got the edge of where their professionalism meets its end in the face of personal feelings. Chauncey Billups has reached his. After being amnestied by the New York Knicks as part of their effort to bring Tyson Chandler to the Big Apple, after Billups was never comfortable…

  8. Tyson Chandler signing official, Chauncey Billups gets the amnesty boot

    Dec 10, 2011, 2:45 PM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    Thanks for coming, Chauncey. After being traded for Denver in a deal he didn’t want (Billups is from Denver and was happy there), as a sidekick to Carmelo Anthony, and then having his option exercised to pay him $16 million, the New York Knicks exercised their amnesty clause on Chauncey Billups Saturday. The move means…

  9. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  10. NBA “Deal Day” moves and rumors (constantly updated)

    Dec 9, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  11. Might Chauncey Billups retire? Or end up with the Clippers?

    Dec 9, 2011, 3:58 PM EDT

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    We know one thing about Chauncey Billups next season: He will not be playing for the New York Knicks. He might not be playing anywhere — he is threatening to retire if a team he doesn’t want to play for claims him on waivers. But what if it is an intriguing team, like the Clippers?…

  12. Knicks moving forward to get Chandler, amnesty Billups

    Dec 9, 2011, 11:28 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    It was the big story yesterday — until Chris Paul was traded then untraded — and it will shake up the Eastern Conference. And it is happening — the New York Knicks will sign Tyson Chandler today tweets Howard Beck at the New York Times. The Knicks will use the amnesty clause on Chauncey Billups…

  13. If Billups is out in New York, does he land in Miami?

    Dec 8, 2011, 5:52 PM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    If Chauncey Billups walked around all day today with a dumbfounded look on his face, he’d have a right. When he woke up this morning he thought he was the starting point guard of the New York Knicks, by the end of tomorrow the NBA’s bottom feeders could be bidding on him. Billups still has…

  14. Report: Knicks about to land Tyson Chandler

    Dec 8, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    If the Knicks are going to compete with the Heat and Bulls as the elite in the East during the next few years, they were going to have to find a way to play much better defense. They may be very close to solving that problem — but it comes with a price. Potentially a…

  15. Warriors offer Tyson Chandler $60 million; Knicks may get him anyway

    Dec 8, 2011, 1:15 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Golden State really wants Tyson Chandler, they are not messing around. But the New York Knicks are about counter with a huge offer of their own — one likely to win the day according to multiple reports. The Warriors have made a four-year, $60 million offer to Chandler, reports Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com. The New…

  16. Report: Grant Hill leaning toward Knicks, not Suns

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    The conventional wisdom is that, like so many people in their “golden years,” Grant Hill was going to spend the rest of his (playing) days in the warm sun and great training facilities of Phoenix. But maybe he is going to trade that in for a cold but exciting New York Winter. That’s what Marc…

  17. Update: Chris Paul trade moving fast, Dwight Howard not

    Dec 7, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This much has become clear: It is very likely Chris Paul will be traded before the start of the NBA season and talks are fast tracked on that move. However, talks surrounding a Dwight Howard trade have slowed to a trickle as Howard has not told the Magic what he wants so that team remains…

  18. Billups not happy he could be moved by whims of a superstar. Again.

    Dec 3, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    Chauncey Billups is not chopped liver. He is a five-time NBA All-Star, an NBA Champion and finals MVP. He’s a rock in the locker room, someone highly respected by other players around the league. He’s a damn good point guard. And last year he was moved on the whims of a superstar, yanked out of…

  19. Carl Landry drawing plenty of free agent interest

    Dec 1, 2011, 12:56 PM EDT

    hornets Carl Landry

    Carl Landry is the kind of solid role player every team can use. He’s got good offensive game and can knock down the midrange jumper as a power forward, can defend and rebound. He’s not going to blow you away in any one category, but he’s going to give you quality minutes every time he…

  20. Heat, Knicks may be big winners in last minute deal changes

    Nov 26, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Heat Mavericks Basketball

    Part of the motivation for the hardline owners during the NBA lockout was to never let what happened with LeBron James going to Miami to ever happen again. To never let what Carmelo Anthony did to the Nuggets ever happen again (they lost the ‘Melo part of the fight). Small market owners didn’t like players…

  21. Chauncey Billups doesn’t trust players’ collective ability to remain strong for a full season

    Nov 3, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    109484492_display_image

    This lockout has never been as simple as one side negotiating against another in an effort to produce a fair deal. There are a number of factors circling the negotiations that inevitably have an impact on their progress and timeline. The NBPA still holds the threat of decertification, a breaking point from which there is…

  22. Donnie Walsh thinks Knicks have the core of a title team

    Sep 23, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    The last time the New York Knicks were NBA champions, George Steinbrenner had just purchased the Yankees for $10 million, the World Trade Center towers opened in New York and Elvis Presley was doing a live concert from Hawaii. So it’s been a while. But former GM and now team consultant — meaning they paid…

  23. Video: Highlights from day 6 of Impact Vegas “lockout league”

    Sep 21, 2011, 2:01 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    We already showed you that Rudy Gay looked plenty healthy Tuesday at the Impact Competitive Training Series (the “lockout league”) in Las Vegas. But there was other stuff worth seeing. For example, not only does Chauncey Billup’s knee look good, so does his jumper. And John Wall has serious handles (but you probably knew that).…

  24. Chauncey Billups says his knee is good to go… are the Knicks?

    Sep 21, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Chauncey Billups is 35 years old and wasn’t really the guy anyone pictured leading a high-octane offense when he was 25. But there he will be whenever next season starts, as the point guard for Mike D’Antoni’s New York Knicks. That was hampered last season by a strained left knee that made it harder and…

  25. Chauncey Billups will see if he can work those Knicks workouts into the dance recital schedule

    Sep 18, 2011, 5:26 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups talked to Newsday this week and among the topics of conversation was a discussion of those team workouts being put together in Florida for the Knicks players during the lockout. While it’s hard to factor Billups as anything short of one of the hardest workers in the league and a veteran with great…
