Before I could even get him tooned, the Pistons first round draft pick is having surgery. The Free Press doesn’t make much of the whole thing, sort of throwing the bit of new in the same sentence as Jonas Jerebko playing for the Swedish national team, but to me surgery is surgery.

I’m not going to sit here and use a foot issue (like some will likely do) as an excuse for Monroe’s Vegas Summer League performances.  I wasn’t expecting him to blow us away,  I know what he’s capable of.  Summer League is a learning tool and Greg did just that. Just check out the highlights in his last game in Vegas.

“Boston did offer Davis and guards J.R. Giddens and Gabe Pruit to the Pistons for forward Jason Maxiell and a first-round pick, but was quickly turned down.”

Now this doesn’t say what year that 1st rounder would come from but maybe that was and issue as well as the signing of Wilcox to fill Detroit’s need in the front court.

I know I don’t have to ask, but how many of you would have like to see this one go down?
