Pistons All-Star guard Chauncey Billups acknowledged he would consider Memphis as a free-agent destination in the offseason. Billups is expected to exercise a player option on a contract paying $6.9 million next season.
He’ll likely enter the summer as the top-rated player available. And the Grizzlies are positioned as serious shoppers for the first time.
Memphis is expected to have at least $10 million in salary cap room , and has already decided to target a big-time point guard.
Billups fits the bill with his offensive prowess and defensive ability, and interest.
