Chauncey Billups lets Richard Hamilton’s phone call go to voicemail, says Hamilton “is pulling for anything to get out of his current situation”

Marc. J Spears of Yahoo! Sports:

Denver Nuggets guard Chauncey Billups looked at his cell phone Tuesday morning and noticed he was receiving a call from an old teammate who very well could become his new teammate.

“That’s Rip calling me right now,” Billups said before letting the call go to voice mail.

Billups has had several conversations with Hamilton about the potential trade and expects a resolution before too long. While Billups doesn’t want to leave his hometown of Denver, he’s accepted it’s a real possibility. Hamilton, meanwhile, is more than ready to leave the rebuilding Pistons.

“I’m sure we will find out soon if it will be a reality or not,” Billups told Yahoo! Sports. “I’ll be ready either way. Of course, Rip . We will see.”
