Will they be able to re-sign him? With the signing of Josh Smith I think it would be best for them to try to trade Monroe. He should have decent trade value although it doesn't look like he has been progressing much as a player. I could be wrong about that, just going off dummy stats. How much would you pay this guy? I have no idea if he plays good D but with Smoove in the fold I would think they could improve their team D by moving Smoove to PF. I don't think they'll be able to get anything for Smith and if you trade him 3 months into his 1st season it sends a horrible message to future potential FA's. Monore could at the very least net them a player or 2 that will allow them to have a more balanced lineup.
Would you're team have anything to offer Detroit? Would you want your team to go hard after a guy who is still very young but who may have already hit his ceiling? Would you want your team going after him knowing he is a FA and players of his ilk cost major $$$$$. I think he should be traded. Detroit screwed up big time signing Josh Smith. Usually making another move to cover up a bad move isn't a good thing. In this case it might be. Detroit is currently in 7th in the east and with any kind of strong finish will make the playoffs. I think they could improve their team by trading their best asset. I think teams in the east like Toronto and Boston who are in playoff position should be buyers at the deadline. There would be a market for Monroe for sure. What would you do with him?
