Chauncey Heading Back Home to Denver, while Big Star in Last Year of Contract is Heading Detroit's Way

Allen Iverson is a piston, but that's only one major asset heading Detroit's way right now. Others could come in the 2010 offseason.

Chauncey Billups and Antonio Mcdyess are heading to Denver in this deal involving AI. Nuggets solve a huge problem in this trade - gaining a top - flight point guard who will be able to faciliate to Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith.This is the third move that the Nuggets have made to reduce payroll. They also traded Camby to the Clippers this past offseason for merely a swap of second round picks in last year's draft and decided not to re - sign Linas Kleiza. Antonio McDyess is also involved in this deal most likely to shed more salary as he is expected to be bought out. As stated, Iverson is in the last year of his contract and is an aging superstar who has been on a team the last couple of years who could not even get out of the first round. Because of this, Iverson will be very eager to prove that it was no fluke that he made it to the finals in 2001.

With Iverson's contract expiring at the end of the season, the Pistons have built a payroll that could add on some salary and potentially two big free agents from the free agent class in 2010 that could include: Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Amare Stoudemire, Ray Allen, Manu Ginobli, T- Mac, Yao, Steve Nash, dirk, and Michael Redd. Joe Dumars finally has responded to the comment he made this past summer when he said no one was safe. This could possibly be the first move in the aggressive makeover of the Pistons, with Ronald Stuckey as the long - term cornerstone of the Piston's backcourt.
