AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Chauncey Billups is back with the Detroit Pistons, and he's eager to be more than just a mentor.

The Pistons brought Billups back on a two-year deal for $2.5 million each year. The five-time All-Star turns 37 in September.

Billups tore his left Achilles tendon during the 2011-12 season, when he was limited to 20 games with the Los Angeles Clippers, and he played 22 games for them last season.

Billups helped Detroit to the 2004 NBA title. The Pistons dealt him to Denver on Nov. 3, 2008, and they are almost 100 games under .500 since making the unpopular move.

Detroit formally re-introduced Billups at a news conference Tuesday.
