Although i have been a fan of Billups in the past, he has slowed down very noticeably. Wallace never was much on the fast break. Wallace is also a pouter. He will be in Nelly's doghouse right away. Between Wallace and Jackson, the Warriors will lead the league in technical fouls. However, their free throw shooting will vastly improve. I would much rather have Billups shooting the occasional 3 than Jackson or Baron. Wallace can score inside when he puts his mind to it. He can also be a shot blocker when he puts his mind to it. I don't think either player is Nelson type of guy, but they both are winners.
Bottom line for me, I would not make this trade.
I think Billups and Wallace are both Nelson kinda guys. Both are athletic, can run the floor and score. Both are experienced winners. Billups is especially interesting since we have Monta, meaning we need a bigger PG to handle the bigger guards.
I like this trade because I highly doubt BD is the future of this franchise and we already know he's not going to take us deep into the western conference playoffs (without a better supporting cast). If we can get value for him before he walks I think we should pull the trigger.
