Clippers guard Chauncey Billups open to playing for the Miami Heat

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

According to FOX Sports Florida, Clippers guard Chauncey Billups is open to examining his options once he becomes a free agent as of July 1 and those options might include playing for the Miami Heat. But whether the Heat would be interested in his services is yet to be seen.

Per FOX Sports report:

The Miami Heat went after Chauncey Billups before last season but weren't able to get him. They soon will have another chance.

The veteran point guard will become a free agent July 1. He said he then will consider the Heat.

"Of course, I would have interest in Miami, of course,'' Billups told FOX Sports Florida after having received the NBA's inaugural Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year Award prior to Sunday night's Game 2 of the NBA Finals at AmericanAirlines Arena.

But Billups, 36, said he will look at all options this summer. He was asked if the Clippers have any sort of inside track to re-sign him.

"I'm wide open,'' Billups said. "Free agent means free.''

It remains to be seen if the Heat, who are pleased with young point guards Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole, might be willing to bring in a veteran at the position. But Billups said he's been watching the Heat and believes he could be an asset.

"Absolutely, I could help them,'' Billups said before the Heat faced San Antonio after having lost the Finals opener last Thursday
