Chauncey isn't a ringless washed-up veteran chasing championships. He wouldn't have signed up here if that had been his plan. He has been there, even got the Finals MVP. He wants to ride into the sunset in dignity, which is why he came back here and which is why this was a classy move by Dumars in the first place. This is a transition-to-retirement phase for Billups, the same way Big Ben did. It makes no sense to trade him, and I doubt he wants to go anywhere else at this point. We won't get anything in return for his contract which is very small. We're better off trading any of: Singler, JJ, Bynum, Gigi, Mitchell, Siva, Jorts. Keep the expirings of CV & Stuckey for cap flexibility this summer.
