Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 6/29/15

Some of the greatest joys of being a sports fan, besides your favorite team winning the championship, are the debates that arise between fellow sports nuts along the way. It’s with this in mind that we have begun providing a forum for basketball fanatics to voice their opinions, debate trending topics, and simply hang out with like-minded hoops aficionados. We’ve begun been posting a new topic for readers to discuss each weeknight, which we hope that this will become a regular part of your sports day. If you missed our previous discussions you can view them here, or simply head over to the sidebar and select “Hoops Rumors Community Shootarounds.”

Of course, there will be differing opinions from time to time. While we absolutely encourage lively discussion and debate, we do expect everyone to treat each other with respect. So, please refrain from inappropriate language, personal insults or attacks, as well as the other taboo types of discourse laid out in our site’s commenting policy.  Speaking of commenting: we’ve made it much easier to leave a comment here at Hoops Rumors.  Just put in your name, email address, and comment and submit it; there is no need to become a registered user.

Now that the preamble has been taken care of, on to the topic of the day: What team is the best fit for Greg Monroe?

Monroe, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this Wednesday, will reportedly meet with the Celtics, Knicks, Bucks, Lakers and Trail Blazers once free agent negotiations begin. While it doesn’t appear that a return to the Pistons is likely to occur for the big man, stranger things have happened. Which of the previously listed teams would be the best fit for Monroe’s skill set? How much is Monroe worth annually, and how much do you think he’ll eventually sign for? Will Monroe’s performance over the life of his next contract be considered a bargain, a bust, or just right? Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts and opinions. We look forward to what you have to say.

  1. Jason Collander

    I’ll back Monroe’s own opinion – Pelicans – He would do well to play with a dominant defensive player in AD. Monroe said he would love to play in NO but they haven’t shown any interest.

    • Chuck Myron

      It is somewhat odd that New Orleans isn’t really making the slightest play for him. They want Asik back, so it’s not as if they don’t believe in having two big men.

  2. Knicks seem good for him. They need to ale sure they don’t overpay him, though.

    • Make*

      • Chuck Myron

        I think he’s getting the max, one way or another. I’m assuming you think that’d be too much for him?

  3. Celtics are the perfect fit. Young team, young coach, they need a big, he’ll thrive in steven’s offense, they have money to spend. Give him the 15 mil per with a player’s option for the 3rd year. Short money after new ca next year.

    • Chuck Myron

      I think the Celtics plan to sell him on just that. He would not be a bad consolation prize at all if they don’t end up with Love, Aldridge, etc.

  4. Adam K

    Best fit would probably be either Pelicans or NY and I think he’ll ultimately wind up in NY. His worth is hard to determine because of the next salary cap jump, but I’d say around 14 mil a year would be fair to both the player and team.

    • Chuck Myron

      That’d likely be about $2MM shy of the max. That would probably be a pretty nice bargain, particularly if it’s a long-term deal.

  5. Matt Galvin


    • Orlando needs a stretch 4 and Monroe and Vucavic are too similar.
      The Heat don’t want to bench Whiteside after a breakout year and have too many bigs as it is…

  6. Seto

    I would say he would fit perfectly in the Spurs offense. Yes, he is not a great defender, but can play C and PF and is a load under the basket. Spurs likes to keep the ball movin and Moose is a very good and willing passer, he would find the corner snipers of Spurs without problems.

  7. Best fit for his personal feelings seems to be NY, but his best fit in terms of Max money and winning are Toronto or Milwaukee…
