by March 22, 2011

Billups tells the media that his wish is to still be in a Knick uniform next season, and beyond. From ESPN: “Chauncey Billups said late Monday night that he’s hoping to remain with the New York Knicks next season and ‘going forward.’ Billups’ contract contains a team option for 2011-2012 for $14.2 million. The Knicks can pick up the option or buy Billups out for $3.7 million. ‘I haven’t ruled anything out. Obviously, I’m hoping to be a New York Knick next year and going forward after that. But I can only control so much,’ Billups said. Billups said that his agent, Andy Miller, has had preliminary conversations with team president and general manager Donnie Walsh about Billups’ future with the club. Walsh has said in the past that he would not rule out signing Billups to an extension.”
