06:55 AM ET 05.08 | Rarely lacking in confidence, Chauncey Billups has faith he'll return even better in 2013-14. [Billups], 36, proclaimed that after an injury-plagued 2012-13 season he would be back to full strength. Close? "I won't be close," Billups said a day after the Clippers were eliminated from the playoffs in six games by the Memphis Grizzlies. "I'll be there next year. I've finally got my body back in position where I've turned a corner and I feel good. Now, it's all about me putting in the work and going through it." Billups is a free agent and said he wants to play at least two more seasons before moving into a role in a team's front office.

A third string point guard with minimum contract that aint bad... I hope some teams grants him his wish. He's still a good player at his age and deserves to be in the league. There's some players that don't belong but will be making more than Billups will command.I hope some team gives him a chance.

Golden state maybe?

Billups is well-cooked, and done.

with the Clippers? Let's hope not. Might make a decent coach though?

Why would any team waste time and money on a 37 year old guy who shoots 40% and has only played 20 games in each of the past two years? The fiascos of Kidd and Nash should be a warning about ancient guards in the NBA.

I hope for Billups sake he's not one of these athletes that spent all of his money and that's the motivation for wanting to play 2 more years!

God Bless Him, he still shakes, Rattles and Rolls, not as quick as he used to be but quick enough for 2 more years, I wish him well no matter where he winds up!!!

I thought Jason Kidd was in this years playoffs? I might be wrong of course, when retires he goes in the HOF first year out of the box, followed by Steve Nash, or visa versa!!!!
