Stan Van Gundy doesn't know if Greg Monroe would accept max contract from Detroit

From Dave Pemberton at the Oakland Press: Talking to the media this week, Van Gundy said the situation was out of his control. Van Gundy was asked, ‘Well couldn’t you just end it by offering him a maximum contract?’ and his replay was short but interesting if you read between the lines. "I don’t even know that, that’s true," Van Gundy said. "I don’t even know that’s true." Monroe might not agree to a max deal? If that’s the case then that means Monroe doesn’t want to play in Detroit or he doesn’t want to play in Detroit with the current roster, meaning he doesn’t want...

Report: Pistons, Blazers had serious discussions about Greg Monroe sign-and-trade

Apparently, Monroe was much closer to being a Blazer than previously realized. Greg Monroe was close to becoming a Portland Trail Blazer, potentially joining LeMarcus Aldridge in what would have been perhaps the most potent offensive big-man tandems in the NBA.

2014 NBA Free Agents: What is the current market for Greg Monroe?

Now that the free agency dust has started to settle, what is the future of Pistons big man Greg Monroe? LeBron James made his decision. And so did Carmelo Anthony. And Chris Bosh. And Chandler Parson. Now, one of the only big names left is Detroit Pistons big man Greg Monroe. The dominoes have fallen and now the remarkably quiet market for Monroe might finally heat up. The only problem for Monroe, however, is that the number of teams who can offer him a considerable amount of money outright has dwindled. The only teams with the requisite cap space to trump the Pistons' reported $12 million...
