Wojnarowski: Hawks Discussed Monroe Trade

Buddy Grizzard —  August 1, 2014 — 26 Comments

According to Yahoo! and Fox Sports NBA analyst Adrian Wojnarowski, the Hawks are one of three teams that discussed sign-and-trade possibilities for restricted free agent Greg Monroe with the Detroit Pistons. According to Wojnarowski, Monroe does not “have a great interest” in returning to play in Detroit.

Wojnarowski was interviewed at coach Mark Schmidt’s summer camp at St. Bonaventure by independent blogger and podcaster Aime Mukendi Jr. (hat tip to indispensable blogger JaeEvolution). You can listen to Wojnarowski’s remarks regarding Monroe starting at the 12:40 mark of Mukendi Jr.’s podcast. The following is a transcription of the relevant segment:

Detroit has tried to help [Monroe] with some sign and trade possibilities around the league. Monroe doesn’t really have a great interest in going back and playing with the Pistons. If they’re going to move him in a sign-and-trade, they’ve got to get value for him. They’ve got to get back some significant talent to compensate for that loss. They haven’t been able to find a deal for him.

Wojnarowski also told Mukendi Jr. that the teams that discussed a sign-and-trade for Monroe have since moved on, unable to reach a deal:

They’ve talked with Atlanta, I believe they talked with Phoenix for a while. Portland had some interest early on, but those teams moved on. They could have signed Monroe to an offer sheet but Detroit would have likely matched it.

  1. They probably wanted Millsap and Korver

  2. Ferry probably floated his draft picks of John Jenkins and Dennis Shroeder as the trade options for Monroe.

    Oh well, let’s give Ferry points for trying so hard!
