Monroe said he will meet with the Celtics, Knicks, Bucks, Lakers and Trail Blazers this week, also acknowledging that the Pistons are unlikely to pursue him, The Advocate reports. "Stan [Van Gundy] had smaller teams in Orlando years ago," Monroe said. "[Andre Drummond] is like Dwight Howard. So Stan wants to put good players around him. The team has different plans, and I respect that. I don't want to be anywhere I'm not wanted."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Monroe had a solid season in his 2012-13 campaign despite not living up to some of the hype of a potential breakout year. He averaged 16.0 points (49 percent from the field, 69 percent from the line), 9.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.7 blocks in 33 minutes per game. The fact that Monroe did not break out completely last season left owners on a sour note, but it could mean that his inevitable breakout year is coming this season. Despite the addition of Josh Smith and the emergence of Andre Drummond crowding the frontcourt, Monroe still has the potential to showcase his best stuff due to his uncanny ability to pass and rack up assists as a big man, in addition to getting his hands dirty on the defensive end with steals. With new point guard Brandon Jennings at the helm of the offense, the Pistons may take a run-and-gun approach which would allow a skilled passing forward like Monroe to thrive with two athletic frontcourt mates in Smith and Drummond. Monroe will be just 23 years of age heading into his fourth season in the NBA, and his breakout season may come sooner than later.

2012-13

With a breakout season in 2011-12, Monroe solidified himself as the Pistons’ primary building block and one of the more intriguing young big men to target in fantasy. In just his second season in the NBA, the Georgetown product put together averages of 15.4 points, 9.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals while showing effectiveness from both the floor (52.1) and charity stripe (73.9). He showed vast improvements in his offensive game during his sophomore season, taking and hitting mid-range jumpers with confidence while also being able to take most opposing big men to the rack and finish with a sweeping, left-handed baby hook. While athletic, Monroe isn’t a high-flyer and spends most of his time below the rim. This has resulted in an average of just 0.6 blocks per game through his first two seasons. As his defensive game develops, Monroe will start swatting away more shots, but he’ll never be an elite shot blocker like other big men. Instead, Monroe will rely on his ability to rack up good amounts of steals and assists – both of which are a rare treat from a center-eligible player. The Pistons will continue to give Monroe more of the load to shoulder, so his best days should be ahead of him. If you’re looking to go young in your fantasy frontcourt, you’ll be hard-pressed to find many up-and-coming big men more attractive than Monroe.

2011-12

Relegated to a reserve role for most of the first half of the season, Monroe initially struggled to find his footing in the NBA. He averaged 5.4 points and 5.2 rebounds in 32 games off the bench. It wasn’t until Monroe was promoted to the starting lineup that he truly blossomed. In 48 starts, Monroe averaged 12.0 points, 9.1 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.7 blocks. The 21-year-old out of Georgetown turned into a double-double machine after the All-Star break, recording 14 in 25 post-break games. Monroe isn’t terribly athletic and often plays below the rim, so he might never be an elite rebounder or shot blocker, but he has active hands and has the ability to be one of the better thieves among pivots. Although his assist numbers (1.3) weren’t impressive during his rookie campaign, Monroe is also a quality passer for a big man and should post decent numbers in that category as his game matures. The Pistons are in full-blown rebuilding mode, and Monroe figures to be one of the team’s centerpieces. He’s among the better up-and-coming centers in fantasy and should be a nightly double-double threat for years to come.

2010-11

The Pistons selected Monroe with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 Draft. At 6-11, 247, the Georgetown product will provide the Pistons with much needed size in the frontcourt. Monroe’s scoring tools are still a bit raw and he lacks the explosiveness of many big men in today’s NBA, but he makes up for those weaknesses with a high basketball IQ, great passing ability, and an underrated ability to clean the glass. Monroe may not have a huge role with the team to start the year, but he could develop into a decent fantasy play by midseason.
