Chauncey Billups talking with Pistons about front-office job

Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:

Pistons have talked with Billups about front office job when he is done playing.

Chauncey Billups has made no secret about his desire to one day become a general manager, and I’d be shocked if working with Joe Dumars weren’t a significant part of Billups’ decision to sign with Detroit. I hope Billups’ management career begins with the Pistons after he retires.

Ideally, that process begins with a couple successful seasons as a player first, but Billups is clearly smart enough to join a front office, and his playing career is winding down. It’s time to think about the future, and not too long from now, the Pistons would do well to hire Billups as a scout or assistant general manager or something of the like.
