    I always liked Greg Monroe's game, but it's hard to give up a pick for a guy going into free agency. But a pick and one of our expirings sounds fair to me.

    A single first rounder is probably fair value for Monroe IF you think you're team can resign him. He's a good passer from the post, but overall, not sure he's a great fit here. He seems like a guy who really wants to be wanted more than anything else right now and I don't think we have the touches to give him here.

    I wonder what our plans for power forward are in the summer. I love Amir but he's probably a 60-games a season type guy moving forward. He has way too many miles on ankles.

    I think Amir is likely done as our starter, but unless we are trading him this season (I'd be shocked), I don't think the Raps should trade for Monroe. That said, if Monroe is there in the summer, is be willing to throw some money that way. Just scared to move a pick for a probable rental.

    I think his bird rights will count for a lot in trying to sign him over the summer. If the Raptors think he fits going forward, then it's worth it to get him now so that you give him a taste of our culture, a taste a winning and playoffs, and hold an advantage over every other team in free agency.

    There is a chance that a guy in his situation will want to take a one-year deal this summer go for a max in 2016 when the new TV deal cap probably kicks in, but that's true of every big free agent this summer. We can give him a one-year contract and keep his bird-rights for 2016.

    For what it's worth, I'd probably trade our first-rounder this year or next. But I wouldn't trade the New York / Denver pick.

    I'm just not convinced Monroe is a good fit. He's still a guy who doesn't really fit anywhere defensively. Not at PF or C. And ideally you probably put him at C, and then need a very athletic energy/defensive PF beside him. Just seems like a lot more roster work would need to be done....I'd rather just try to find a true PF that fits with what we have already.

    I like him, but has Monroe ever played a playoff game? Either way I'm not sure his style of play fits the Raps.

    Monroe has always seemed a passive player to me....maybe he was just bummed to be a Piston...but passive is not what we need in a big.

    Absolutely 100% his Bird Rights would count for a lot. Of course, any team that trades for him doesn't get his Bird Rights, so, yeah, it would be really stupid for any team to give up a pick for a 4 month rental.

    Holy crap ... They waived him ... I'm not at all surprised by this!
    Me from 6 years ago though ... Damn.



    I'll take Monroe though as a starter. I think him and JV could be a wicked pair down low.

    I could see Josh Smith landing in Houston though.

    Wow. I guess other teams wanted compensation for taking on his contract. Wonder where he lands.

    Can't believe they couldn't get anything. Jennings next?

    He's so bad, he got a coach (Mike Malone) fired on another team...

    I'll guess Dallas. They gutted their bench getting Rondo. Lots of available playing time on a very good, potentially excellent team.

    Don't know what Carlisle thinks of him though. If the Mavs don't try to sign him, Smith is even more toxic than imagined.
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.
