Denver (AP) - Denver coach George Karl says he'll have to tweak his offense to accomodate the acquisition of Chauncey Billups in the blockbuster trade that sent Allen Iverson to Detroit.

Karl says he'll make changes to incorporate Billups' pass-often mind-set, moving away from Iverson's shoot-first mentallity.

Karl has been searching for a pure point guard since surrendering Andre Miller to the Philadelphia 76ers in the trade that brought Iverson to town in December 2006.

Besides acquiring Billups, the Nuggets got Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb from the Pistons.
