Asik, and keep ROLO. Detroit to tank and rbld, Greg Monroe the pawn/bait. Why and How

Monroe is the Top 10-14 ranked Power Forward by five different media sources.

Greg Monroe Detroit: 6-11", 250, 23yo

Pnts 16.4, Rebs 9.5, Blks 0.9, PER 19.29

"If the Pistons were dead set on keeping Monroe around, they would have already inked him to a massive extension. As it is, they've still got until October 31 to pursue that option. According to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, the parties haven't even discussed that possibility: 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"

Portland Gets: Omer Asik

Portland Gives: Freeland, McCollum, Leonard, Claver

Because Wes and Mo are here to stay, CJ will languish on our bench for two more years. Would CJ be able to impact like Lillard has? Risky! Were he a long true 2, and defensive stopper, would be cause for hesitation. Crabbe is a Proto 2 guard.

Meyers will have a better opportunity to exceed Harrellson as a backup to Drummond.

Why Not?

Asik, Lopez

Aldridge, Robinson

Batum, Wright

Matthews, Crabbe

Lillard, Williams

Blazer Center salary is only a combined $14.5 mill. Best value in NBA..
