Chauncey Billups Officially Retires From NBA
Chauncey Billups announced today that after 17 seasons in the NBA, he is retiring.
Billups became an unrestricted free agent when the Pistons declined the second and final year of a contract option that would have paid him $2.5 million next season.
Billups said, “It’s just time. I’m happy, excited. The game was very, very good to me. I felt like I was equally as good to the game the way I played it and the way I respected it and the way I carried myself through the process.”
