Chauncey Billups joined Adrian Wojnarowski on the latest episode of "The Vertical Podcast with Woj," which was released Wednesday morning.

The episode is about 48 minutes long, and covers a variety of topics. Here is the description of the conversation from The Vertical.

In a candid and far-reaching conversation, Billups discusses why he turned down the top assistant coaching job with the Orlando Magic this spring, his conflicted emotions over Kevin Durant joining the Golden State Warriors, and how his Detroit Pistons' championship team was the most anti-Super Team of the modern era. Billups discusses how he went about helping Carmelo Anthony to become a leader in Denver, balancing his love for Larry Brown with disillusionment over how Brown was navigating his Pistons departure for New York in the middle of the 2005 NBA Finals series against San Antonio, to the most indelible memories of the Malice at the Palace. Billups also talks about his unique Hall of Fame candidacy as a player who struggled his first several few years in the NBA.

Billups has a burgeoning media career with ESPN, working as a studio analyst since 2014. He has been an outstanding representative of Colorado, and continues to make a difference in the community and with the Nuggets.
