DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Pistons have decided to bring back Chauncey Billups.

Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars confirmed the move Thursday morning.

Billups has agreed to a two-year deal - the first season is guaranteed - for $2.5 million a year.

Detroit dealt Billups to his hometown Denver Nuggets early in the 2008-09 season and the team has struggled since making the unpopular trade. Billups was the NBA Finals MVP in 2004 when he led Pistons past the Los Angeles Lakers.

The five-time All-Star turns 37 in September. He bounced back last season to play 22 games for the Los Angeles Clippers after tearing his left Achilles tendon during the 2011-12 season.

 

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Pistons are now 66/1 to win the 2014 NBA Finals. The Miami Heat remain the clear favorite at 2/1, while the team with the next best odds is the Oklahoma City Thunder, who are 9/1. The Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls , Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs are all 12/1, respectively, while the Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers are both 14/1 to win next year’s NBA title, respectively.
