AUBURN HILLS, MI (WTVB) -   The Pistons have signed guard Chauncey Billups to a two-year deal.  Billups, who was traded by Detroit to Denver in 2008, played just 22 games last season for the Clippers because of injuries.  Pistons center Andre Drummond is willing to switch numbers, so Billups can go back to wearing the number-one jersey in Detroit. 

The Los Angeles Lakers will not keep Metta World Peace.  The Lakers are using the amnesty clause to release the veteran forward from his contract.  World Peace is known for his superb defense and has averaged 14.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game in his 14-year career.  The 33-year-old has expressed interest in playing for the Los Angeles Clippers or in his hometown of New York.  He reacted to the news yesterday, taking to Twitter to say -- among many other things -- that he's "retiring and playing hockey."
