Although Greg Monroe refused to commit to the Detroit Pistons this offseason, that doesn’t apparently mean the former Georgetown product is ready to leave Motown.

Both Monroe and the Pistons went back-and-forth during the offseason in attempts to find middle ground on a contract, though a deal was never struck and Monroe ended up signing a one-year qualifying offer. Given that, it was expected that Greg Monroe would leave at the end of the upcoming season though that’s not a given according to the young forward who suggests he will consider re-signing with the Detroit Pistons.
"Monroe is banking on his talent, that he will show enough this winter to cash in bigger next summer, when he becomes an unrestricted free agent. When asked whether he would consider Detroit after this year, he said, “definitely.”"
You can’t help but wonder if that’s anything but lip service on the part of Greg Monroe considering he was all but offered the max this offseason. Of course, Greg Monroe does stand to make more money at the end of the upcoming season and if the Detroit Pistons are willing to max his contract out again, maybe that will be enough for him to re-sign.
Still, with the amount of teams who are set to have cap space (Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, etc) will Greg Monroe really be interested in returning? Or is he just trying to keep the peace?
