Monroe’s options down to two with passing of trade deadline

The NBA trade deadline came and went with Greg Monroe remaining a Piston for the present. We explore the likelihood that the Motor City is also in his future. With all of the last-minute trade activity from Detroit, it’s easy to overlook a frequently discussed trade that did not happen. Ever since he signed the Qualifying Offer last year, there was speculation that the Pistons might try to move Greg Monroe in order to get some return, rather than lose him this summer. By inking the QO, he positioned himself to become an Unrestricted Free Agent, able to agree to any offer he receives...

What type of team is Stan Van Gundy building?

A team of pterodactyls, that's what. Wingspan, wingspan and more wingspan.  Any more wingspan and Jay Bilas might have a heart attack.  There's no question that Van Gundy is building for the future, and the acquisition of Reggie Jackson points toward that, and, if Jackson is re-signed, which appears likely given Van Gundy's comments, there will be a young core of Jackson, Andre Drummond, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Greg Monroe (if he re-signs) which can grow together. But the profile of player which Van Gundy is acquiring is interesting.  Long, athletic players appear to be the order of...

NBA trade rumors: The Jazz want Greg Monroe? This is so stupid

A local radio personality has managed to link Trey Burke to the Pistons, because hey, what else is there to talk about? Not all trade rumors are created equal. Terry Foster of the Detroit News reminded everyone of this fact when he wrote this strange, unsourced article linking the Pistons with former University of Michigan point guard Trey Burke: The Jazz are entertaining offers for Burke, and are reported to be interested in Pistons forward Greg Monroe. Utah is also willing to part with center Enes Kanter. The deal, however, is unlikely because of John Lucas III. Foster's entire...

Greg Monroe's basketball intelligence helps him excel

Greg Monroe is the Pistons' professor. The State Farm National Bureau of Assists is an All-Star team. Whether you're on the east or the west, the agents are here to assist on StateFarm.com. When Greg Monroe was selected No. 7 overall in the 2010 NBA draft, we were told he had high basketball IQ, great instincts, plus decision making and unselfishness. Five years later, these all hold true, and it's been a joy to watch the pre-draft intangibles breed the tangible. In five seasons, Moose has cultivated his skills and has developed into one of the premier big men in the NBA, one who is...

NBA Trade Rumors: Greg Monroe isn't going anywhere at deadline

The NBA trade deadline is Thursday, Feb. 19 at 3 p.m. ET. With the NBA trade deadline on Thursday, Feb. 19, there are going to be a lot of rumors floating around in the next few days. It's important to be able to decipher rumors from roomers and sources from hot pockets. One name you might hear or read about is Greg Monroe. Don't get all excited, for better or worse. "It's not gonna happen," Stan Van Gundy said last Wednesday. "I don't know where Greg's head will be in the offseason, but we're still hopeful of Greg Monroe for the long term. And with him going into free agency, you won't...

Since Josh Smith waiving, Greg Monroe has been among league's top big men

The Moose has been loose. It's been in typical understated Greg Monroe fashion that he's taken the step as one of the elite big men in the league. In the past month and a half of the post-Josh Smith era for the Pistons, the team's point guards have received most of the accolades - and they've deserved plenty of praise. Brandon Jennings and D.J. Augustin have stepped up brilliantly when needed most. But without the steady presence of Greg Monroe, their efforts wouldn't have mattered. Since December 22, Greg Monroe has averaged 16.5 points per game on an excellent 56 percent true shooting...

Pistons vs. Nuggets: Greg Monroe leads Detroit by Denver, 98-88

Greg Monroe collected 21 points and a career-high 21 rebounds in the win. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is good to go tonight against the Denver Nuggets after sitting most of the Pistons' previous game against the Indiana Pacers. Caldwell-Pope suffered a right Achilles injury against the Miami Heat but was able to tough it out for the remainder of the contest. Against the Pacers, however, he asked out of the game just a few minutes in. At the time KCP said the injury wasn't serious but that he wanted to be safe. "I wanted to come back, but just to be on the safe side I just sat the game out,"...

Pistons vs. Pacers: Detroit falls on the road, 114-109

The Pistons fell on the road to the Pacers despite 18 points and 16 rebounds from Andre Drummond. The Pacers were led by 20 points from George Hill. The Pistons roller coast ride of a season went from a horrifying plunge to an exhilarating climb when the team released high-priced forward Josh Smith. The first game the team played after waiving Smith was against the Indiana Pacers, a game they promptly won behind dominating games from big men Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe. Now the Pistons go back where it all started with another game against the Pacers. Only this time, Indy is looking up...

Greg Monroe's historic January put him in exclusive company

Greg Monroe had 14 double-doubles in 17 games in the month of January. Greg Monroe didn't have a double-double in the first game of February (12 points, nine rebounds vs. Miami), but he was a double-double Moose machine in the month of January. In 17 games, Monroe put up double digit points and rebounds in 14 games. As Keith Langlois pointed out before the game, Monroe's 14 in January tied a franchise record and forever puts him in Pistons lore: Greg Monroe's 14 January double-doubles tie Laimbeer (1/87) and Grant Hill (3/96) for most as a Piston in any month over last 30 years. — Keith...

Detroit Pistons notes: Delicate balance continues in maximizing Greg Monroe at forward

Detroit Pistons notes: Delicate balance continues in maximizing Greg Monroe at forward

The Pistons put Monroe back in the game against a sizzling Chris Bosh and got two key baskets from him in a 108-91 win over Miami, but using him at power forward is always a push-pull scenario.
