According to ESPN, the Blazers were in talks with the Pistons to trade for Greg Monroe. The writer guessed that it centered around sending Nicolas Batum to Detroit. How do you feel about that potential trade?
I personally think Robin Lopez would have to go somewhere in a three-team trade to make it work. Monroe, Lopez and LaMarcus Aldridge can't realistically share the front court, and Detroit has no need of Lopez. If Lopez does go some where, the Blazers absolutely need to find another small forward.
Overall it seems like not such a good fit, but a better one that the trade Detroit and Sacramento are discussing.
This was before they got Kaman. We were looking to add another big man to the rotation to lower the minutes of LA. TRob/Freeland weren't going to give us enough offense. Monroe was looked at but I believe they decided against it early on.
