Greg Monroe says rumors that the Pistons have moved him to the trading block are “foolish.”
“I have a very close relationship as do most players who play for the Pistons with the front office” Monroe told Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated while participating in the USA Basketball camp in Las Vegas this week. “They communicate with us very well. … There’s always going to be speculation people are going to make up stuff they’re going to hear stuff they’re going to write it. I don’t worry about it. I’m very happy being a Piston and I hope they’re very happy with me. As far as I know they like me.”
Team president Joe Dumars told The Detroit News last week that no Pistons player was untouchable other than Andre Drummond. But Dumars added that Monroe isn’t being shopped and he’s eager to see how the frontcourt of Monroe Drummond and Josh Smith works out.
