Van Gundy: 'Focused' Greg Monroe 'playing great basketball'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pistons forward Greg Monroe is having a pretty promising preseason, averaging 16.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per game, according to the Detroit Free Press. He is shooting 61.3 percent from the field and 74.2 percent from the free-throw line.

"I just know he's playing really well -- very consistent and not just in games," coach Stan Van Gundy said. "I don't remember him having a bad day out here. He's just been really, really good. I think he's playing great basketball."

Van Gundy added Monroe is also getting the job done on defense.

"He's focused," Van Gundy said. "He concentrates well and does his job. He doesn't make many mistakes. I like guys like that defensively. He doesn't miss rotations."

Greg Monroe to come off bench in Pistons' preseason opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pistons forward Greg Monroe will not be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Bulls. However, coach Stan Van Gundy tried to downplay the lineup decision Tuesday as an indication Monroe will be coming off the bench to begin the season, according to The Detroit News.

"It'll be different every game in the preseason," Van Gundy said. "Seriously, it was random as much as anything. We knew the 10 we wanted to play today. But it was pretty random."

Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Caron Butler, Jodie Meeks and Brandon Jennings were named the starters for Tuesday's preseason game.

Pistons PF Greg Monroe explains why he could walk away
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pistons forward Greg Monroe has explained his side of the contract squabble in which he turned down a sizeable offer from the team in favor of a one-year deal that could allow him to leave next July.

"It's no disrespect to the people working here but it was just tough for me to agree to another four years with new people," he told the Detroit News. "Honestly, if you were to ask the average person would they do that in the arena they're in, they'd say no."

Monroe made certain to explain that his decision was not a slam against the city or fans.

"When talking about leaving Detroit, it was the team specifically," he said. "I have no problem with the city, or the fans or the people. I don't have a problem with anyone here. I've been received with open arms. People have always shown me love. Fans, they've stuck with us through hard times."

Monroe has been one of the bright lights in a sea of darkness. He has averaged 15-16 points and 9-10 rebounds per game in each of the last three seasons.

Greg Monroe agrees to return to Detroit for one season
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pistons forward Greg Monroe has signed his $5.5 million qualifying offer for  the 2014-15 season as expected, Yahoo.com reports.

Monroe was a restricted free agent this offseason who found a lukewarm market awaiting his services. Monroe reportedly wanted out of Detroit, but was unable to find a long-term deal to his liking. Monroe will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason, and the Pistons risk losing him for nothing, because any team acquiring Monroe via trade this season would lose his Bird rights.

Monroe's numbers took a bit of a hit last season, as the Pistons' frontcourt grew more crowded. He still averaged 15.2 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in 82 contests.

Pacers shopping Roy Hibbert, call Pistons about Greg Monroe
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Pacers are shopping center Roy Hibbert, and they have called the Pistons regarding a potential deal involving restricted free agent Greg Monroe, Detroit Sports 105.1 reports.

There's no word about whether the Pistons would be interested in a Monroe-for-Hibbert spot, but they are pretty well set in the middle with Andre Drummond in the starting lineup. It's a rumor that seemingly has very little chance of coming to fruition.
