Guard Billups re-signs with Clippers


Posted Jul 13 2012 5:16PM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Five-time All-Star Chauncey Billups is staying with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The team said Friday that the unrestricted free agent has re-signed, a move coach Vinny Del Negro had mentioned a day earlier.

Billups averaged 15 points, 4 assists and 2.5 rebounds while playing 30.4 minutes in 20 games for the Clippers last season. His season ended in early February when Billups tore his left Achilles tendon in a game at Orlando. But he stayed with the team and served as a de facto coach during the Clippers' run to the Western Conference semifinals.

Billups had been claimed off waivers by the Clippers last December, a couple weeks before the lockout-shortened season began.
