The Denver Nuggets have traded Allen Iverson to the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess.
After a morning of speculation, the Associated Press announced the deal is official.
Billups is a Denver native and played his college hoops at Colorado.
* The Boston Globe reports that Iverson had been telling people in Denver he expected to be packing his bags soon.
*The Rocky Mountain News says Iverson would be a perfect fit in Detroit.
* The Detroit Free Press consulted Rasheed Wallace for comment, which is always entertaining.
What do you think of the trade? Judging from the reaction on some Pistons message boards, the good people of Detroit are sorry to see Mr. Big Shot go.
