Report: Greg Monroe sought sign-and-trade this summer

The sides were unable to come to an agreement on a long-term deal, and so it seems, though both sides are saying all the right things, Monroe isn't long for the Pistons' organization.

What should Detroit do if Monroe signs the QO?

With the latest information indicating that Greg Monroe may sign the Pistons’ one-year Qualifying Offer, how should the team respond if this actually happens? Even before the NBA’s free agency period began on July 1 of this year, the various options for what Greg Monroe could do were clear. These were his choices: 1. Sign a new contract with Detroit 2. Sign an offer sheet with another team and then wait to see if the Pistons match it 3. Negotiate a sign-and-trade that sends him to another team and compensates Detroit 4. Sign the Qualifying Offer paying him $5.48 million for 2014-15 and...

Trading Greg Monroe could be best as free agency looms again

But with agent David Falk in his corner and a bushel full of teams needing a big man, if Monroe doesn't want to play for the Pistons beyond next season, it would be in their best interest to trade him to get some type of value for the 6-foot-10 power forward.

Greg Monroe accepting qualifying offer isn't as stupid as many people think

If Greg Monroe does indeed accept the Pistons' qualifying offer, as USA Today reports he's going to do, it's not as dumb as a lot of people make it out to be. The qualifying offer ("QO") has always been a possibility since the Pistons put it on the table. Many believed that to only be a technicality, but Greg Monroe's camp and even Stan Van Gundy insisted it was a distinct possibility and, now, USA Today reports it's going to happen even if Greg Monroe doesn't know it's going to happen. The common knee-jerk reaction to Monroe signing the QO -- a one-year, $5.5 million deal -- is that he's...

The Bulls 12 months from now (SB Nation NBA Theme Day)

The Bulls are in line for a great season, but will they be the defending champions heading into 2015-16? We've reached that point in the offseason where activity has mostly come to a screeching halt, outside of a few special circumstances. One of those is about to be resolved, with Greg Monroe reportedly set to accept the Pistons' one-year, $5.5 million qualifying offer. Eric Bledsoe remains unsigned and the Kevin Love trade still must officially go through, but other than that, the big moves are done and rosters are mostly set. Because we have an idea about what the teams will look like...

NBA Free Agency 2014: Report suggests Greg Monroe will sign qualifying offer

It may have seemed like the unlikeliest of scenarios, but a report from USA Today indicates that Greg Monroe will sign the qualifying offer in order to become an unrestricted free agent in 2015. Greg Monroe will sign the qualifying offer, and he's told the Pistons about his intentions, according to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today Sports. Doing so will keep him a member of the Pistons for the 2014-2015 NBA season, and he could only be traded with his consent. Monroe would then hit the free agent market in the summer of 2015, and the Pistons would be powerless to stop him from leaving the...
