Ex-NBA player Chauncey Billups interested in joining Nuggets’ front office


chauncey-billups-1Former NBA star Chauncey Billups has admitted that he’d be interested in joining the front office of the Denver Nuggets – a team where he spent 5 years of his NBA career as a player.

“If the right role was available – and I’ve always made known, I haven’t been quiet or private about it at all,” Billups said, according to CBS Sports. “I’ve always had a passion to run a team, to put together a team.”

“That’s always been a passion of mine. I think I could do a phenomenal job at that.”

“I want to be somewhere with somebody where they really, really want to go win. They’re just not OK with mediocrity – and I’m not saying that’s what (the Nuggets) are 100 percent – but it has to be the right situation for me,” Billups said.

Billups led the Detroit Pistons to their 2003-2004 NBA championship. He averaged 15 points, 5.4 assists and made 38.7 percent of his 3-point attempts during his NBA career.

He made the All-NBA second team twice, the All-NBA third team once and the All-Defense team twice. He finished with 15,802 points, ranks 39th all-time with 5,636 assists and sixth with 1,830 3-pointers made.
