Chauncey Billups: Now Included in Carmelo Trade Talks
Chauncey Billups is the most recent name to be dragged into the Carmelo Anthony trade talks, according to NBA.com.
The deal that would involve the Detroit Pistons as a third team that would send Anthony to the Nets has Billups upset:
"The point guard has long maintained he wants to stay in the Mile High City, but acknowledged after morning practice Tuesday the situation was well beyond his control.
'I've been doing this for a long time. It's part of business,' said Billups, whose team hosts the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night. 'You've got to try to come to work and do your job, see what happens.'
Anthony expressed remorse Monday that Billups was linked to trade talk."
Despite the precarious position Billups finds himself in, he also expressed his fondness for how Anthony is handling the situation, citing Anthony's concern over the future of his teammate.
If Billups is indeed traded, the deal would likely reunite him with teammate Richard Hamilton in New Jersey. A Nets team with Carmelo Anthony, Richard Hamilton and Chauncey Billups may be the fuel for the Nets' recent patience in trade talks.
