Could Mr. Big Shot return to the Motor City?

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Let the NBA free agency rumors take center stage.

According to ESPN's Chris Broussard, the Pistons have shown interest in free agent Chauncey Billups who wants to play two more years in the NBA.

The thought of Mr. Big Shot returning to The Palace would certainly be a fitting way for him to finish his career. 

It would also make sense for a Pistons team that's in need of some point guard help, too.

Billups, who signed a one-year deal to stay with the Los Angeles Clippers last off season, has reportedly expressed interest in joining the Miami Heat next season.

In fact, there are a few basketball clubs that are interested in having Billups as a backup point guard.

According to reports, Cleveland, San Antonio, Dallas, Sacramento, Brooklyn and Minnesota are interested in the 36-year-old Billups.

However, Billups has made it very clear that he's a "lifetime Piston" and would love to retire with Detroit.

The value that Mr. Big Shot would bring as a backup point guard to the Pistons really speaks for itself.

He started all 22 regular season games he played at shooting guard for the Clippers last season, and averaged 8.4 points per game with 2.2 assists.
