NBA Free Agents 2015: Greg Monroe insists Pistons 'have the upper hand' to sign him

Terry Foster of The Detroit News reports that not only are the Pistons still a viable option for Greg Monroe, but Monroe says that the Pistons have the upper hand. Greg Monroe took rare steps last offseason signing the Detroit Pistons' qualifying offer so that he could enter this offseason as an unrestricted free agent. He has stated that he did so that he could have control over where he played. He risked injury and millions of dollars. On Monday, Terry Foster of The Detroit News quoted Monroe saying that the Pistons are still a viable option. "I don't know why people have the notion or...

2014-2015 Detroit Pistons season awards: Block of the year

It's time to leave you feeling rejected. Maybe the only thing better than dunking on someone, is blocking someone who is trying to dunk on you.  It's the defensive equivalent of a slam dunk, except you're dunking the ball back down the attacker's throat.  Let's see who the nominees are for Pistons' block of the year. #1 - Greg Monroe on Andrew Bogut Look at that lazy defense from the Moose, giving one of the league's best shot blockers a taste of his own medicine.  This block gives us a glimpse at Monroe's oft-hidden athleticism, but it also shows that the claims that he is downright...

Stan Van Gundy sees growth, excited for future of Pistons

Stan Van Gundy and Jeff Bower addressed the media Thursday. It seemed the biggest obstacle of Stan Van Gundy the coach was Stan Van Gundy the president of basketball operations. That's what happens when you reportedly reject a deal for your ill-fitting highest-paid player and then release the same player 28 games into the season. Then once coach Van Gundy righted that ship and things began to hum, executive Van Gundy came in and blew up the roster again, trading key pieces for Reggie Jackson. That roster churn combined with a series of injuries to Brandon Jennings, Jodie Meeks and Greg...

2015 NBA Free Agency: David Falk opens up on Greg Monroe's FA intentions

In an interview with the New York Post's Marc Berman, the NBA superagent discusses Greg Monroe's looming offseason decisions.

2015 NBA Free Agency: Monroe: “I haven’t agreed to anything”

Greg Monroe denies New York Daily Times report that signing with Knicks is “done deal.” While it may be a sure thing that Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks pursue Greg Monroe as an unrestricted free agent this summer, that doesn't make it a done deal. Turns out Monroe also has a say in where he signs. The report from Frank Isola that Monroe to the Knicks was "about as close to a done deal as you can get" didn't pass the smell test from the get-go as teams aren't able to begin free agent negotiations until July 1. Coming to an agreement before then would open the Knicks up to...

2015 NBA free agency: Knicks targeting Greg Monroe

New York Daily News reports Greg Monroe to New York Knicks is "about as close to a done deal as you can get." Frank Isola of New York Daily News reports that Phil Jackson looks to court Greg Monroe aggressively this off season - even going so far as to insinuate some of that courting might already have taken place. Maybe the worst kept secret in the NBA is that Phil Jackson plans to pursue Detroit Pistons forward Greg Monroe in free agency this summer. In fact, one league executive called it "about as close to a done deal as you can get." Still, this wouldn't be the first time a reporter...

Everyone says the Knicks want Greg Monroe

Hi! I hope you're having a good Sunday. Even with this drag of a season near its end, the Knicks are months away from pursuing free agents. Well, kind of. Isola: Maybe the worst kept secret in the NBA is that Phil Jackson plans to pursue Detroit Pistons forward Greg Monroe in free agency this summer. In fact, one league executive called it "about as close to a done deal as you can get." A done deal is illegal of course and would open Jackson and the Knicks to tampering charges. A more likely scenario is that representatives from both parties have made their interest known and will proceed...

Greg Monroe returns hoping to fit in with Reggie Jackson

Greg Monroe will return to the starting lineup Wednesday after missing 11 games with a strained knee. The fact the Pistons have played well in his absence, winning seven of 11 games, isn't lost on him, but with five games left in the season before testing unrestricted free agency, he's determined to try finishing on a high note. From Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: "You just try to continue doing the things we're doing already," Monroe said. "Obviously they've been playing well. So probably just move the ball and play with the energy they've been playing with. "Just work myself...

Detroit Pistons notes: Reggie Jackson tries again to make it work with Greg Monroe

The Pistons' point guard's production boomed with Monroe out of the starting power forward spot, and the injured player's return is perhaps the most intriguing element of the season's final five games.
