Billups already said he wants a buyout if he gets traded to the Nets... He doesnt want to play there...
You are only getting Melo
Billups is only a short term acquisition any way you look at it and I think the Nets realize that. Nobody is looking at Billups as being the cornerstone of a dynasty, he's just a side piece nugget. Carmelo is the main piece nugget, and where he goes others will follow. Just like how Lebron brought all those other guys with him to MIA, Carmelo will bring people to the Nets. It will take years to do, but it'll happen gradually.
