Allen Iverson Trade - Billups/McDyess Involved in Nuggets/Pistons Deal
In what is easily the most surprising news in the NBA this season, the Denver Nuggets are reportedly trading Allen Iverson to the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess.
The Nuggets weren't going to be very good w/ Iverson and Anthony together, so it made sense for them, but I have no idea what the Pistons are thinking here. Sure, Iverson will help sell tickets, but I wouldn't even necessarily consider him an upgrade over Billups.
Both Billups and McDyess have played in Denver before, so I'm sure they know what they're getting from both players. Billups is a Finals MVP and NBA Champion, while McDyess has had a pretty good career after almost being written off after micro-fracture knee surgery.
It will be interesting to see how the Denver lineup shakes up now w/ Billups at the point.
