What do you guys think about Greg Monroe???  He didn't sign an extension so yeah I wonder where he'll land unless Pistons match of course (but I doubt they will being that they like Drummond and have Smith).

I don't think the Pistons let Monroe go.  He's a 16/10 guy at 23. They can do a lot with him actually.

They didnt offer it b/c they didnt want to cut into their initial cap space.  If he balls out he will be resigned.

It'll be dope if Durant ends up going back to the DMV.

Phoenix Suns got cap space to re-sign him and 4 first round draft picks.

Any RFA like him we will have to overpay for, could be worth it but not sure what that means for a championship run in the Kobe era if we are overpaying and picking up young guys.

Not really impressed by Durant's ability to run a team without Westbrook next to him.   Nor his ability to deal with double teams and defensive pressure when teams can scheme for him.  

Looks like a Nightwing to me.   I wouldn't mind having him on the team though, but he doesn't look like the guy to LEAD you to the promise land.    If we get Durant and just surround him, I don't know if that's enough.  

If we have Rondo etc by the time Durant got here I'd feel a lot better about it.

I'm all for planning for future years and speculating but you are talking 3 full seasons away.  No way you can speculate the landscape or even consider what KD wants to do.  How do you know they won't make a decent trade that puts them over the top in the next year or this year?  They have a great team with some nice young developing pieces.  If Lamb and Adams work out like they want they will stay a top 4 team.
