Nuggets' Billups still wary of being traded
It wasn't the Denver Nuggets that broke off talks that would have sent Carmelo Anthony(notes) and Chauncey Billups(notes) to the New Jersey Nets. It was the Nets who decided to call things off, so the veteran point guard Billups isn't heaving a sigh of relief.
"It still stings," Billups said, according to the Denver Post. The Denver native said his mind hasn't eased and he knows he still might be dealt, the paper reports.
The 34-year-old has been in the league since 1997 and has played for six teams: the Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic, Minnesota Timberwolves, Detroit Pistons and Nuggets. This season, he's averaging 16 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 5.3 assists.
