Sql 2012 database restore insufficient space

I have a very big database that I need to restore in our dev environment, but I do not have enough space to overwrite the existing database.  I wanted to know if I could detach the current dev database, delete it, and then create a new db with the same name.  This way there would be enough space to overwrite the new db.  Do you think this will work?  As anyone run into this issue before?

Thanks,

Bill
