Default Billups gets 5years/$60 mil to stay with Pistons

http://detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/art...127/SPORTS0102

The basic premise of the deal is believed to be solid -- five years and $60 million. What needs to be worked out, apparently, is the language of the fifth year. That fifth year might not be entirely guaranteed, or, the bulk of the $60 million will be paid over the first four years.

Hmm if Chauncey is only gettin that how much can Deron expect next year? Na, I know he'll get almost if not a max deal, but it would be nice to shave off a few million off Dwill's contract.

Chauncey sucked in the playoffs and who's offering that much for a 30-yr old PG this summer? Detroit was basically bidding against themselves...

He's lucky they didn't low-ball him IMO...

bargain my ass. No way I'd have gone over maybe 13 mil a year, and that's pushing it. 12 mil is fine.

I know age is a factor, but damn. Lewis gets $75M after having not done **** his entire career but score points. Billups gets a Finals MVP and only gets $60M.

Times are changing, that's for sure.

That was a weak MVP award. Kobe, lebron and T-Mac have never won no MVP and are better players that him, and under 30 years old.
