Pistons PF Greg Monroe explains why he could walk away


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:02 pm ET) Pistons forward Greg Monroe has explained his side of the contract squabble in which he turned down a sizeable offer from the team in favor of a one-year deal that could allow him to leave next July.

"It's no disrespect to the people working here but it was just tough for me to agree to another four years with new people," he told the Detroit News. "Honestly, if you were to ask the average person would they do that in the arena they're in, they'd say no."

Monroe made certain to explain that his decision was not a slam against the city or fans.

"When talking about leaving Detroit, it was the team specifically," he said. "I have no problem with the city, or the fans or the people. I don't have a problem with anyone here. I've been received with open arms. People have always shown me love. Fans, they've stuck with us through hard times."

Monroe has been one of the bright lights in a sea of darkness. He has averaged 15-16 points and 9-10 rebounds per game in each of the last three seasons.


Greg Monroe agrees to return to Detroit for one season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Pistons forward Greg Monroe has signed his $5.5 million qualifying offer for  the 2014-15 season as expected, Yahoo.com reports.

Monroe was a restricted free agent this offseason who found a lukewarm market awaiting his services. Monroe reportedly wanted out of Detroit, but was unable to find a long-term deal to his liking. Monroe will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason, and the Pistons risk losing him for nothing, because any team acquiring Monroe via trade this season would lose his Bird rights.

Monroe's numbers took a bit of a hit last season, as the Pistons' frontcourt grew more crowded. He still averaged 15.2 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in 82 contests. 


Pacers shopping Roy Hibbert, call Pistons about Greg Monroe


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Pacers are shopping center Roy Hibbert, and they have called the Pistons regarding a potential deal involving restricted free agent Greg Monroe, Detroit Sports 105.1 reports.

There's no word about whether the Pistons would be interested in a Monroe-for-Hibbert spot, but they are pretty well set in the middle with Andre Drummond in the starting lineup. It's a rumor that seemingly has very little chance of coming to fruition.


Greg Monroe could be a max offer away from getting traded


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Pistons coach and president Stan Van Gundy has said that he would like to retain restricted free agent Greg Monroe, but the team could have no choice but deal him in a sign-and-trade. CBS Sports NBA Insider Ken Berger reports that Detroit might be forced to deal Greg Monroe if he's offered a max contract.

The Pistons are dealing with a bloated frontcourt in both the financial and literal sense, with forward Josh Smith owed $13.5 million each of the next three seasons and center Andre Drummond facing free agency in the summer of 2016. Detroit will want cap space to offer Drummond, a potential franchise center, to an extension and will be hamstrung should they match a max offer sheet for Monroe.

The Trail Blazers, Hawks, Cavaliers and Magic are said to be interested in the big man entering his fifth season. He's averaged 14.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game over his career.


Greg Monroe doubles up vs. Timberwolves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He hasn't failed to score in double digits since the end of January. Monroe has averaged 14.8 points and 9.0 rebounds over 62 games played.


Greg Monroe scores 27 vs. Bulls


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2014) Pistons forward Greg Monroe snapped out of a mini three-game slump Wednesday, as he led the team in scoring in a 105-94 loss to the Bulls.

Monroe was a focal point offensively while logging 44 minutes in the loss. He scored 27 points on 12 of 20 shooting, his second-best total of the season. He added seven rebounds, five assists and two steals, while turning the ball over just once.

Monroe has just 33 points in his previous three game, so it was good to see him get back on track against a tough defense. He is averaging 16.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game over the last five.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) The Pistons have been telling interested teams that forward Greg Monroe is not available in trade talks, ESPN.com reports.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Drummond notched 24 points and matched a season high with 19 rebounds, giving him three straight games with at least 18 boards to his credit. Monroe chipped in 18 points and a season-high 17 rebounds, earning a double-double for the first time in his last six games.

Greg Monroe stuck in a rut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) Pistons center Greg Monroe didn't have the most productive game Friday against the Hawks, but he was still able to record a double-double in just 29 minutes in a 96-89 loss.

 Monroe scored 11 points on 4 of 9 shooting and snagged 11 rebounds in the game, while adding one assist, block and steal in a mostly quiet game.

Report: Greg Monroe won't receive a contract extension before deadline


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2013) The Detroit Free Press reports that it's "highly likely" that Greg Monroe won’t receive a contract extension from the Pistons before the Oct. 31 deadline, which would potentially make him a restricted free agent next off-season.

Monroe averaged 16.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists while logging 33.2 minutes per game last season. It's speculated that Monroe will shift to power forward this season with Andre Drummond at center.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope a potential starter


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) The Detroit Free Press took a stab at projecting the Pistons' starting lineup Monday, more than two months before the start of the regular season. And it looks like Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the No. 8 overall pick in this summer's draft, could begin his career as a starter.

Caldwell-Pope was listed as a first-team shooting guard, as the team will really need some shooting in a starting lineup that essentially features two power forwards and a center, none of whom have a reliable jump shot. Brandon Jennings, Josh Smith, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe fill out the rest of the projected starters. 

Caldwell-Pope could fit in as a floor spacer, after making 37.3 percent of his 3-pointers as a sophomore at Georgia, while attempting more than seven per game. Caldwell-Pope's main competitor for the spot will be veteran Chauncey Billups, another dead-eye shooter who has nonetheless proven liable to break down at the age of 36. 


Monroe moving to power forward?


(4/24/2013) The Pistons official team website reports that Greg Monroe expects to line up at power forward next season with Andre Drummond at center. "A lot more shooting, a little more ballhandling, just being comfortable being a little bit further off the block,” he said. “I’ll be off the block more, although I can’t really say.” The report says shooting more than anything tops his summer to-do list. “It will be more shooting than anything,” he said. “I’ll have the ball in different areas, but as far as ballhandling, it’s not like I’ll be bringing the ball up. At the top of the list, if I had to make a list, shooting would definitely be a big part of it. It just opens up everything for myself and the rest of the offense.”
