    I'm surprised that a somewhat quality Stretch 5 like Mullens can't get a minimum contract offer on an NBA Team.
    Since I've seem him play, I can. Mullens is not a very good player.

    Since she's being honest with herself maybe Violet will admit she's a crap ref now

    If I was a GM, I would hope my rotation was good enough that I didn't have to play Mullens. That means he is a 5th or 6th big, at best. JMO, but I'd rather have a developmental guy or a guy that could defend or a guy that could score in the post or a guy that can rebound. In other words a guy with some actual post skills.

    She announced she's getting married to her partner, who happens to be a woman. Yeah that's a part of the reveal but that's like saying she was "admitting she was straight" if she made public her engagement to a man.

    Thanks very much for this perspective. I fixed the proposed quote because the word "admitting" is the one that burns me a little.

    He's not good enough for a team to offer him a max contract and Detroit is willing to match any reasonable offer. So there is no point for a team to make an offer.

    So basically the same thing as with Bledsoe. The player thinks he is worth $15M and the team [and every other team with cap space evidently] think he is worth $10M or $12M.

    What generally happens in these cases is that the player ends up with a short term contract for less than they wanted and they later demand a trade because they feel "disrespected".

    Wow, who knew he had been released into the general population? Or does he play in an orange jumpsuit?

    arrests/charges just since we drafted him: pot, stolen handgun, felony possession of a "codeine substance", pot again,
    codeine cough syrup again...

    But I'm sure that he can stay out of trouble in Miami.

    Or both Players can just accept a Qualifying Offer and then become a UFA next season......which would likely result in the Pistons/Suns exploring trade options by the Pistons/Suns before the Trade Deadline since they will likely lose him for nothing.

    I can see Monroe being Sign and Traded.....at $15+ mil....I can see some Team gambling on him coming out of his Rookie Contract.

    the QO is almost never accepted, and this is why...

    The player plays another season at well below market value (in both cases players would lose roughly $6-7 million) and the team cannot trade said player for that season without his consent.

    The QO is a last resort. Neither side really benefits.

    The word on Monroe is he'd prefer a trade (honestly he's the one guy on the team I wouldn't blame for wanting out), but no team out there is willing to give up the serious assets that SVG would want.

    The Suns could offer him a max deal outright, but like others have said they obviously don't think he's worth it because they were in trade discussions for him before they backed out, as was Atlanta.

    On the other hand, Drummond is campaigning hard for Monroe to come back, and he's the franchise player, so re-signing him isn't totally out of the question.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    $15 million a year for a PG to play through ages 33-36 is pretty steep no matter who he is.
