2013 NBA free agency: Chauncey Billups would like to play 2 more seasons, according to report


Veteran guard Chauncey Billups would like to play two more years before retiring, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard. Billups has garnered interest from several franchises, including his former team, the Detroit Pistons.

Billups suffered through an injury-plagued season with the Los Angeles Clippers last year, playing in just 22 regular season games. Billups did start all of those games at shooting guard, but there won't be many minutes to be had with the Clippers next year thanks to the three-team trade that brought J.J. Redick to Los Angeles.

The Clippers could bring Billups back as a point guard behind Chris Paul, but his days at shooting guard may be over. Going back to Detroit would make a lot of sense, as Billups was a key member of the Pistons during their run in the 2000s. Billups would also provide veteran leadership on a team filled with a lot of young talent.
