Chris Webber is returning to the NBA ... soon. Not necessarily to the Pistons, but from the sounds of things he'll be signing an NBA contract this week. From an interview with a Sacramento TV station this weekend (via TZ at FanHouse):
But in an exclusive interview Sunday, Webber told News10's Bryan May that he will sign with a new club and be back on the court in a matter of days.
"I'll be back in two weeks playing basketball," Webber said.
Webber said he hadn't made any firm decision on where he would resume his NBA career, but the 16-year veteran said he had fielded offers from several NBA clubs and had narrowed his choices down to three teams. Webber declined to name the teams he was considering.
(You can allegedly access the video the full interview on the TV's station's web site, but I can't get it to work.) What three teams might be interested? I'm thinking Detroit has to be one of them, although a roster spot would have to be cleared for it to happen. At FanHouse, Ziller also mentioned Dallas (which courted C-Webb hard this summer), Boston and Los Angeles. In other words, arguably the top four teams in the league. I'd throw the Magic into the mix, especially since they're 1-5 in their last six and might be panicking.
