Pistons Unlikely To Sign Greg Monroe To Extension

Greg Monroe is a pretty good player, but he’s not Andre Drummond and doesn’t ooze potential on a daily basis.

That reason alone is why Monroe won’t receive the big money extension that others in his draft class have already gotten according to the Detroit Free Press.

Under the new CBA, NBA teams can only have one five-year designated player, and all signs point to that player being Andre Drummond in 2015-16.

The Pistons reportedly still consider Monroe a huge part of their rebuilding effort, but the circumstances suggest the team would be better off letting the season play out.

The Pistons can now see how things play out, and either extend Monroe next fall, or package him in a trade if they determine he doesn’t fit with Drummond and Josh Smith.
