According to the Detroit Free Press, Chauncey Billups and the Pistons have agreed to a deal. The new contract will keep Billups on the team for five years (with the fifth year being a team option). Billups will make 60.5 million dollars with this contract.
Hopefully this is the last of the negotiations between Billups and the Pistons. Chauncey can officially sign a contract next Wednesday, which I hope he does with Detroit. This new contract is only slightly more than what was reported to the media a few days ago. Billups’ agent hasn’t renounced this agreement yet, which may be a good sign.
Be sure to check back here on the 11th to see if Billups does in fact re-sign with the Pistons.
