In need of a reserve point guard and some veteran leadership, the Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly expressing interest in the 36-year-old Chauncey Billups. Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears reports that, with the Los Angeles Clippers recently acquiring J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley, Billups could be on the outside looking in. The Cavs—along with the San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves—are, in turn, looking to take advantage. This news follows a recent report stating that Billups was “interested” in joining the Miami Heat if things did not work out in Los Angeles. Billups started all 22 regular-season games he played at shooting guard for the Clippers last season. He spent a good portion of the year rehabilitating from a Achilles surgery, but reportedly has no intentions of retiring despite the desire to have a front office position following the end of his playing days. Though averaging just 8.4 points per game for the Clippers in 2012-13, Billups averaged 15.0 points and 4.0 assists per game a season earlier. Following the drafting of forward Anthony Bennett and guards Sergey Karasev and Carrick Felix, Cavaliers GM Chris Grant discussed the importance of veterans in a locker room full of younger players. The Cavaliers have also been linked to point guards Darren Collison and C.J. Watson, though it appears the latter is going to sign with the Indiana Pacers upon the July 10 window being opened.
