Monroe 'definitely' willing to re-sign with the Pistons

Greg Monroe spoke publicly for the first time since his suspension for DUI and signing the one-year qualifying offer. Pistons big man Greg Monroe is not the kind of person to seek the spotlight. He hasn't made waves, good or bad, in the press, in social media or in the locker room. So it's no surprise that he has largely been silent since signing his qualifying offer and the announcement that he has been suspended for the first two games of the season as a result of a February DUI arrest. Monroe spoke to the media for the first time since the events of his odd offseason while on hand at...

Patience may pay off for Greg Monroe

The Sports Business Journal reports that the league will have a new TV rights deal in place before next season, and that helps explain why Greg Monroe was willing to forgo millions of dollars in guaranteed money. Greg Monroe is either a genius or an idiot. A player sacrificing money for happiness or a selfish malcontent. An overrated bum who should ride the bench or gifted young player with supreme confidence in himself. All of that because he decided to do something slightly unprecedented -- turn down in excess of $50 million guaranteed on a new multi-year contract and instead sign a...

Stan Van Gundy on Greg Monroe: The Pistons 'respect his decision' to sign qualifying offer

Here's the Detroit Pistons' official press release announcing the news we've already been discussing the last several days, posted here for the sake of being comprehensive: AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – The Detroit Pistons announced today that forward Greg Monroe has signed the team’s one-year qualifying offer for the 2014-15 season.

Greg Monroe signing qualifying offer might not mean he’s done in Detroit

Let’s step back from the ledge. Moose signing the qualifying offer can still work out in the best interest of the Pistons. It's entirely reasonable to think that Greg Monroe is tired of Detroit. It may well be that he refused to re-sign with the Pistons because of Josh Smith, averaging 28 wins per year, or because he wants to be the primary young player on a team's frontcourt. That said, let's try taking a few deep breaths and look at the situation objectively. Despite the purgatory-esque length that the situation was drawn out, remarkably few trustworthy details were leaked in the...

Greg Monroe reportedly would've rejected Pistons max offer, wanted unrestricted free agency all along

Greg Monroe signed the Pistons qualifying offer on Friday and, according to USA Today, that was his plan all along. Greg Monroe was reportedly offered a deal by the Detroit Pistons that would've made him the highest paid player in franchise history. Monroe tweeted that those reports were false, insinuating that maybe if he was really offered the lucrative guaranteed deal, there would be something for him to consider and potentially accept. That's one theory anyway. However, after it was reported that Monroe signed the Pistons' $5.479 million qualifying offer on Friday, USA Today wrote...

What they're saying: Becoming unrestricted free agent was Greg Monroe's master plan

Monroe's agent, David Falk, encouraged his client to sign a qualifying offer with the Pistons and avoid offers from other NBA clubs so he can sign with any team he chooses next summer, when Detroit wouldn't be able to retain him by matching any contract.
