Poll: Should Detroit Pistons retire the jersey numbers of Chauncey Billups, Ben Wallace?

NBA free agents 2014: Chauncey Billups weighs options, Rodney Stuckey meets with Pacers

Billups and Stuckey have played their final games in a Pistons uniform, and they must wait for the first phase of free agency to play itself out before discovering what the future holds. Chauncey Billups and Rodney Stuckey will forever be linked in my mind. After all, it was Stuckey's emergence as a rookie in the 2008 NBA playoffs that convinced Joe Dumars to trade Billups to the Denver Nuggets early the following the season, resulting in the ill-fated and short-lived Allen Iverson era in Detroit.
