Chauncey Billups has interest in joining the Heat
Billups, 36, was in Miami on Sunday to receive the NBA’s inaugural Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award. He struggled with a torn Achilles tendon the last two seasons and missed 38 of the Clippers’ first 41 games this past year. Despite the injury, Billups said he has no plan on retiring.
From Fox Sports Florida:
The Heat went after Billups after he was released in December 2011 as part of the NBA’s amnesty provision. However, the Los Angeles Clippers won the bidding process, and he has played with them the past two seasons.But Billups, 36, said he will look at all options this summer. He was asked if the Clippers have any sort of inside track to re-sign him.“I’m wide open,’’ Billups said. “Free agent means free.’’
