The Detroit Pistons have presented an offer to restricted free agent Greg Monroe that would make the big man the highest paid player on the team, but it is still not enough to convince Monroe to sign a contract.
That latest bit of news comes from Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, who is plugged in and has covered the Greg Monroe saga better than anyone else. The pertinent info from Ellis:
The Pistons have moved from the initial five-year, $60-million offer and an offer that's slightly better than the four-year, $54-million deal that Josh Smith signed last summer is on the table.
But the offer to make him the highest paid player on the roster hasn't brokered an agreement. And negotiations aren't ongoing.
