It seems that the pistons are offering Greg Monroe about 12 Mio a year - and he is not accepting that offer. I suspect, that Moose is starting to understand, that he will not get a max contract, but his pride might tell him: you should be the best payed Piston. So since Josh Smith got about 13 Mio a year why not offering Greg 4 years 56 Mio or 5 years 70 Mio? By this the Pistons are going to have more money to spend on other players in the future and Greg can keep his face - by getting the fattest contract in team history. Your thoughts?
