Greg Monroe Won’t Get Extension by Deadline?
There’s a reason why you haven’t heard a lot about Greg Monroe’s contract situation — there’s nothing to report.
It’s highly likely that the fourth-year power forward won’t receive a contract extension from the Pistons before the Halloween deadline, meaning Monroe will be a restricted free agent next off-season.
But don’t misunderstand the move. At this point the Pistons 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.
