Greg Monroe's Fantasy value gets a boost


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2014) The Pistons may have left Josh Smith without a job Monday, but their decision to waive their free agency prize from the 2013 offseason will have a positive impact on at least one player: fellow forward Greg Monroe. The fit between the two was always awkward, but Fantasy owners should expect Monroe to flourish now, as I wrote at the Fantasy Basketball Today blog:

"Smith led the team with a 25.3 percent usage rate this season, while Monroe ranked second at 24.0, however Monroe's number shrank to 21.9 percent when he shared the floor with Smith, per NBAWowy.com. Monroe posted a 55.0 percent True Shooting percentage in 281 minutes without Smith, compared to 52.9 percent with him.

Monroe should see a huge boost in his Fantasy value moving forward, especially since he should be able to do more facilitating; remember, he averaged 3.5 assists per game in the final season before Smith arrived. He could be a must-start Fantasy option before long, so this might be your last chance to buy low."

Monroe is already owned in 100 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, so it's not like you'll be able to run out and grab him after this news. However, you should view him as much more valuable than he was even a week ago, and might be someone you look at as a good trade target right now. 



Pistons waive forward Josh Smith


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) The Pistons announced they have waived forward Josh Smith on Monday.

"Our team has not performed the way we had expected throughout the first third of the season and adjustments need to be made in terms of our focus and direction," coach Stan Van Gundy said. “We are shifting priorities to aggressively develop our younger players while also expanding the roles of other players in the current rotation to improve performance and build for our future. As we expand certain roles, others will be reduced. In fairness to Josh, being a highly versatile 10-year veteran in this league, we feel it’s best to give him his freedom to move forward. We have full respect for Josh as a player and a person."

The Pistons signed Smith to a four-year, $54 million contract in 2013 and Smith is due $14 million each of the next two seasons. To minimize the financial impact of Smith's release, the Pistons are expected to use the stretch provision which allows teams to stretch out contracts more than $25 million over twice the amount of years in the contract, plus one year, reports the Oakland Press.

Smith has struggled to fit into Van Gundy’s system. In 28 games, Smith is averaging 13.1 points while shooting a career-low 39.1 percent from the floor. 

With Smith's departure, forward Greg Monroe is expected to see an increase in minutes. Monroe is averaging 14.7 points and 8.8 rebounds over 29.0 minutes.


Agent: Pistons' Greg Monroe not seeking trade


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) The agent for Pistons power forward Greg Monroe said Wednesday that his client is not seeking a trade, USA Today Sports reports.

"[Monroe] does not want a trade," agent David Falk said. "He wants to honor his commitment to Stan and give it the year and evaluate everything at the end of the season."

Teams have shown interest in acquiring Monroe from the Pistons, but they would need Monroe's approval before trading him due to his acceptance of a one-year qualifying offer this summer. He has averaged 15.0 points and 9.1 rebounds in 23 games.


Pistons' Monroe denies trade rumors, calls them 'completely false'


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) Pistons forward Greg Monroe, who was rumored Monday in trade talks, said he and the team "haven't had discussions like that at all."

"To say I was unhappy, losing 13 in a row, you can say that about everybody on the team," Monroe said. "Nobody's happy when you lose 13 games in a row. But as far as where he took it, that was completely false, and it's really, like, ridiculous to have to come in here and answer questions like this."

It was reported Monday the Pistons were seeking a first-round pick for Monroe, but coach Stan Van Gundy said no team has approached them or vice versa. 

The Pistons will take on the Mavericks Wednesday.


Report: Greg Monroe open to trade; Pistons want first-round pick


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Pistons forward Greg Monroe wants to be traded, sources told the Sporting News. However, the Pistons are seeking a first-round pick in return for Monroe and appear unwilling to waiver on their demands.

Monroe signed a one-year, $5.5 million qualifying offer this past summer. He will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season.

According to NBA rules, Monroe is allowed to veto any trade before the February trade deadline. However, a source with knowledge of the situation doesn't expect Monroe to veto any deals.

"Everyone knows he wants out of there," the source said. "There is almost nothing he would shoot down."

Monroe is averaging 15.0 points and 9.2 rebounds in 22 games, which is close to his career averages of 14.0 points and 9.0 rebounds.

Pistons start Smith, Monroe, Drummond Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) The Pistons have chosen to go with a jumbo front line Wednesday, starting Josh Smith at small forward, Greg Monroe at power forward and Andre Drummond at center against the Knicks.

Monroe came off the bench in his season debut Saturday, scoring 18 points on 7 of 12 shooting and grabbing 11 rebounds in 30 minutes. Smith has averaged 16.3 points and 7.0 rebounds over the team's first three games, while Drummond has delivered 12.0 points and 9.7 rebounds per game.


A bench role best for Greg Monroe's Fantasy value


by Jeff Tobin | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Coming off the bench can be seen as a sign of ignominy in sports circles, but it isn't always a bad thing for Fantasy purposes.

Pistons forward Greg Monroe may make his return to the starting lineup as soon as Wednesday against the Knicks, but that probably wouldn't be the best thing for his value. Monroe scored 18 points, 11 rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes in his season debut, while never once sharing the court with both Josh Smith and Andre Drummond. Though his minutes might be a bit more limited if Stan Van Gundy separates the big three, serving as the focal point of the offense would only benefit Monroe, who saw his scoring, rebounding and assist numbers all fall off last season.

Fantasy owners were frequently frustrated by the ill-fitting trio in Detroit last season, and the presence of a shot-happy point guard didn't help things. Van Gundy gave lip service to separating his big men more this season, so it would be disappointing to see him go back on that so quickly.

Fantasy owners hoping for the best from Monroe should actually root for him to remain the team's sixth man. 


Pistons considering jumbo front line for Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy told the Detroit News he is considering starting his jumbo front line -- Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond -- on Wednesday against the Knicks. Monroe came off the bench in his season debut Saturday, scoring 18 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in a loss to the Nets.

Pistons PF Greg Monroe to come off bench Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2014) Pistons power forward Greg Monroe will come off the bench in Saturday's home opener against the Nets, MLive.com reports.

Monroe has notched 274 consecutive regular-season starts dating back to January 2011, but coach Stan Van Gundy said that the team will stick with the same starting lineup used in the team's first two games while the power forward served a two-game suspension.

"At the end of the day, the only difference will be some players on the court might be already warmed up," Monroe said Saturday. "It's no difference coming in the first six minutes or coming in the second six minutes. You have to work yourself into the game. So I'm just going to try to make sure that I stay warm, stay ready, and when I get into the game, just get into the flow of the game as quick as possible -- like I would if I was starting. So I don't think it's really that big of a difference."

Monroe averaged 15.2 points and 9.3 rebounds while starting all 82 games last season.
