Last year is a copy of my post when Billups was a FA. ____________________________________________________________________ Re: Life after Billups? If CB doesn't get a max deal I believe he will ask for a sign and trade probably to go back home to Denver. Our P.G. of the future will be a young, create your own shot, defensive minded coming out of this year's draft. Bet on it. This youngster will be a starter guaranteed. ___________________________________________________________________ I truly believe that Stuckey needs to start, Billups becomes expendable, trade him now while he still have value . LB down in Charlotte can finish honing his PG skills along with Rasheed, they may in fact turn that franchise around. It will be beneficial for both clubs, #1 LB will received 2 players that helped to win him his first ring, plus the Carolina connection, plus the respect factor that both of these players can bring to the org. (Well Billups anyway) The Pistons get a chance to see Stucky blossom into an outstanding pg that can penetrate, pass and play good defense. A compliment to Hamilton creating a super fast back court and we get away from that slowed down style bringing the ball up the court. Billups is slow. The team would become more athletic especially if AJ, AA and Max get significant minutes. We can ask for Okafur and Matt Carroll. Just think if we could pick up Brand as a FA, a frontcourt of Brand and Okafur would be awesome.
