Chauncey Billups Rumors: Chicago Bulls Have Shown Interest, Deal Isn't Likely

After a disappointing 2011-2012 campaign, the Chicago Bulls are reportedly considering a wide variety of actions in order to get the team back into the championship conversation. That's had them busy in free agency, with K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reporting that the team has reached out to guard Chauncey Billups:

The Bulls have cast an extremely wide net in free agency, even making perfunctory calls to the camps of veterans like Chauncey Billups, who would have little interest in signing for any of the exceptions or minimums the Bulls are willing to offer.

Considering that Billups has made at least $10 million or more annually in every season since 2007, it's understandable that he wouldn't be willing to take such a massive pay cut. Last season, he appeared in only 20 games, averaging 15.0 PPG and 4.0 APG while shooting just 36 percent from the field.
