Allen Iverson-Chauncey Billups Trade Finalized


The shakeup promised by Detroit Pistons president Joe Dumars after last season’s Eastern Conference finals has materialized just two games into the new season.

The Pistons and the Nuggets have finalized a trade that sends guard Allen Iverson to Detroit and Pistons mainstays Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess to Denver.

"We just felt it was the right time to change our team," Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars told The Associated Press. "Iverson gives us a dimension that we haven’t had here and we really think it’s going to help us."
