That team is fairly well rounded out now.... they just need a star and their in a pretty nice situation. A couple of those picks and one of the younger pieces could net them a nice upper tier player to go with that core and still have 15 Million to spend and 2 picks.

I was a lot higher on him last season and rightfully so, because his play has really gone down this year. Whether it's because of the addition Josh Smith or the emergence of Drummond I'm not sure, but I wouldn't go near the max salary for him.
therealdeal wrote:You guys are totally off-base. Monroe is a very talented young man and he's going to get near the max, if not a complete max deal, from someone. 6-8 million? No way. He's worth closer to 10 and you probably won't get him for that.
He's playing less minutes this year next two very good rebounders on a bad team and he's averaging almost what he did last season.
2014: 15.1 points 9.3 rebounds 2.0 assists 1.1 steals 0.6 blocks
2013: 16.0 points 9.6 rebounds 3.5 assists 1.3 steals 0.7 blocks
He's shooting 50.2% from the field and is only taking 12 shots a game to get 15 points. He's efficient around the rim, an above average passer, and he's got very good hands both offensively and defensively.
His cons: he's not a great leaper, he's not the greatest post defender or rim protector, and he's shown regression on his free throw shooting.
Overall the kid is only 24 or something and he's one of the better big men in the NBA already. I'd love to have him here and I'd be willing to pay a pretty good amount of money for him. Certainly more than 6-8 million.

I think Love is playing with a much better and balanced team than Monroe is. If I were going to build a team from scratch I'd take Monroe as my PF at 12 to 14 Million over Love at 20+ million. That will probably cause a crap-storm I know but I'm not that sold on Love personally and definitely not sold as the highest paid player on a team.
