Congrats Pistons fans, your 2004 finals MVP is back. Chauncey Billups agreed to a two year deal worth five million dollars with the Detroit Pistons. Chauncey Billups 36, the point guard and leader for the Detroit Pistons was traded to Denver for Allen Iverson in November of 2008. He first signed with the team in 2002 and is now back on a two year contract, could he be back for good? After the trade in 2008, Billups was shocked and felt a little disrespected to find out Allen Iverson wore his number 1 jersey, as many of us would have thought his jersey would be lifted in the rafters. Since then, the relationship between Pistons general manager; Joe Dumars and Billups has gone down the drain. However, when interviewed earlier this year, Chauncey Billups said: “I will just say this, first and foremost: No matter what happens, I’m a lifetime Piston. I always feel like I’m a lifetime Piston. As you know, I would have loved to retire a Piston when I was here, but that really wasn’t in the cards. You never say never to any situation. I got nothing but great memories about here and winning, and this building was on fire. I would like for my memories to stay like that.” The signing is a signal of Joe Dumars and Chauncey Billups reuniting once again and it could signal as an apology to the Detroit Pistons fans for trading their all-star finals MVP point guard for virtually an expiring contract. One thing we know for sure; the Pistons are relevant again but do they have enough to make a tittle push? One could only assume in Billups’ situation that he would only choose to a sign with a team that has a legitimate chance to win within the next two seasons. Could this mean more moves are ahead for the Detroit Pistons? Or could it mean that Billups; one of the league’s most respected and most intelligent players was promised a front office job or a job to work with the coaching staff after his contract runs out. Do I smell a Jason Kidd situation looming? Who knows, both of these outcomes could be in fact true. We do know the Pistons delivered when they said they were ready to spend and this should put fans in the palace seats.
