Chauncey Billups Not Likely Headed to the Milwaukee Bucks

Tony WichowskiCorrespondent IJuly 15, 2008

John Mladic, a writer for, suggests that the Milwaukee Bucks could make a run at Chauncey Billups.

Don't expect this to materialize unless Milwaukee is willing to part with a player who can make Detroit better.

Mladic suggests building a deal around Charlie Villanueva which doesn't make much sense because he would do absolutely nothing to make the Pistons better and he would just add to the four power forwards already on the Pistons' roster.

The only deals that could be made with Milwaukee that might benefit the Pistons would have to include Andrew Bogut or Richard Jefferson. The Pistons could use a center or a scoring forward. Michael Redd is not a significant upgrade over Richard Hamilton, so it is doubtful the Pistons would make a move for him.

Besides, the Bucks already have an up-and-coming point guard in Maurice Williams and a super-sub in Ramon Sessions. This deal just does not make sense for either team.

With that said, look for Billups to be the most likely Piston to be traded this summer and Tayshaun Prince to be the most likely player to get traded as a result, either in a package deal or a resulting trade. Hamilton will be dealt only if a superstar wing is coming in.

I have a tip that I cannot reveal. I am almost willing to put my neck out on this one... remember what I said. Billups will soon be gone.
