  1. there goes a potential roster filler for us…He has a much bigger role in Detroit anyway. They still need to figure out what they’re doing with Greg Monroe though. As I’ve said, I would keep him, but Josh Smith cant play the 3 offensively, and their spacing is atrocious. Nobody is going to take Smith in a trade either, so they either keep Monroe on a roster where the pieces dont fit, trade him for assets, or lose him for nothing
