The Atlanta Hawks really weren’t supposed to do much this season but they ended up nearly eliminating that No. 1 seeded Indiana Pacers in the first-round of the postseason. While that may have had more to do with how badly the Pacers are playing at the moment, the Hawks now have grand plans for the future as they’ve seen how well their team can win at times the way it’s constructed.
Still, they need more pieces and one of those pieces could be restricted Detroit Pistons free agent Greg Monroe.
There have been some recent rumbles on the personnel grapevine that the Hawks will lob themselves into the bidding for Detroit Pistons restricted free agent Greg Monroe.
The close ties between Monroe’s agent, David Falk, and Falk’s former star client Ferry make such rumbles inevitable.
Monroe was reportedly drawing interest at the trade deadline but the Pistons refused to trade him. Now they’re in a situation where a team like the Hawks can come along and offer him an insane amount of money, thus stealing him away from Detroit if they’re unwilling to match.
Atlanta won’t be the only team in on Monroe this offseason, but they’re an interesting landing spot and he may help put them over the top in 2014-15.
