    The only way I see Billups coming here is if we throw an absurd amount of money his way. BC might have done it, but no Ujiri. New York is showing interest in Billups to fill in the role which Kidd left behind. If you were Chauncey and both teams were offering more or less the same money whom would you sign with?

    Ujiri will not over pay anyone to play here this season.

    Who says he has to throw a butt load of money at him? Chauncey made 3 million last year and has recently injured his achilles. He could easily command more than the minimum, but I said this when free agency started...if he was a hot target expecting an MLE type offer (give or take), he'd probably already be off the market.

    And, again, role matters big time. Does he really have a role waiting for him in NY? They have Smith, Shumpert, Felton and Prigioni already signed in the backcourt. I doubt he wants to risk a situation where he doesn't play much at all. Again, he doesn't need to go ring-chasing as a cheerleader. He wants to play. PLAY. There is no role security in NY. And they can only offer the minimum. NY has also been linked to Telfair, Brooks...and someone else. They're hardly courting Billups alone, and they're not making him a very attractive offer.

    And seriously, I don't know if there's a "pretender" more obvious than the Knicks. These guys ain't winning shit. If Billups wants to play for a winner, it's MIA, SAS, OKC, LAC, CHI, IND, MEM, GSW, HOU.....I think all those teams have a better shot at a ring than NY. NY could easily collapse at any moment, between age and clashing personalities. Many of those teams have 2 PGs set though. Not a lot of opportunities, and certainly not a lot of money.

    Billups wants to play, and he doesn't want to play for a minimum. If the Raps can offer the bi-annual, or amnesty Kleiza and offer the leftovers of the MLE, it might be enough to at least get a discussion going on whether he wants to join the Raps, especially since they can offer him a legit role.

    FUCK Billups just signed with Detroit....

    So clearly he went with sentiment, because he chose a team that can easily be worse than Toronto (though I'm not suggesting we were ever necessarily a real option), and he only took 2 years/5 million, which is exactly the kind of number I hoped to sign him at. FUCK!

    I wonder if Mo Williams will reconsider being a backup...and taking shit money.

    And I think now AJ Price moves near the top of my list, if not the top.

    How about Andre Miller? Need to get him via trade though, but I believe I heard rumours that Denver was willing to trade him out at one point. Miller makes $5M this year, but only has $2M guaranteed for next season.

    Camby (or Kleiza) for Miller?

    I think it hinges on the direction MU wants to go heading into the season. If they are satisfied with Stone as the backup, then it makes sense to go after a young player as the 3rd string PG. In that scenario, I wouldn't be suprised if Kabongo was at least up for consideration.
    Myck has exactly 2 points and 4 assists, 3 turnovers so far in three games in Orlando so his stock could not be lower when it counts the most. He should go back to school at a Canadian university and get a degree.

    Yeah. I hate watching it. Might it be that Ujiri knew more than me and many others? lol

    Billups would have brought veteran leadership, grit, experience, and obviously some talent - old - but talent to this team, plus the fact him backing up Lowry would be awesome.

    Look....this team has no vets. Nobody like a Willis or Oak, or Curry or Muggsy. They really need somebody to bring that experience and approach, someone who knows what it takes to win. And on top of that, someone who had a hard time finding his place in the league. There's no negative to having a guy like that with a roster that's otherwise set, and pretty young.

    No...it's just a bit extra frustrating because of how crappy the PG market is.

    Yeah I think Billups would have made a fantastic locker room presence. But no sense crying over it since now we have the opportunity to sign Uzoh instead! :P

    In related news, I really have no idea what Dumars is doing. Every time he has cap space, he squanders it so quickly. How does he still have a job?

    His D is also pretty bad. I mean, he can shoot, and he's a decent PG. But yeah, he's an acceptable option mostly because better fits are not there.
