Chauncey Billups Announces Retirement

Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The 2004 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, Chauncey Billups, announced his retirement on Tuesday.

"It's just time. I'm happy, excited. The game was very, very good to me," Billups told Yahoo! Sports. "I felt like I was equally as good to the game the way I played it and the way I respected it and the way I carried myself through the process."

Billups played 17 seasons in the NBA for seven different teams, including playing for the Detroit Pistons from 2002-08 and winning a title in 2004.

The 37-year-old averaged 15.2 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.9 rebounds per game throughout his career. Originally drafted by the Boston Celtics in 1997, Billups also played for the Pistons, Orlando Magic, Toronto Raptors, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks, and Los Angeles Clippers.

Billups rejoined the Pistons this past season, averaging 3.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in only 19 games.

Detroit announced in June that they would not be picking up his option for the 2014-15 season.
