    This is crazy. I cannot believe this is happening this year. Some agents really need to get fired and some of us need to start our own agency cause apparently these guys don't know what the hell they add doing.

    How you can let your client sign a QO is beyond me. Risky is an understatement.

    However SVG is partially to blame with being too hard nosed in negotiations. The difference w Bledsoe in Phoenix is he knows Phoenix has a fair offer on the table. Who knows what kind of crap offer SVG was trying to get away with.

    Hopefully this pushes PHX over the edge.
    Do they really want to role the dice on both there point guards?

    The market is so screwed up with all these random dudes getting max contracts like the Parsons', Rudy Gay's, and Hibbert's of the world. Responsible GM's won't hand them out to dudes like Monroe, but why wouldn't Monroe go for the max or near max (assuming that's what he was going for) when he's around that tier of player?

    Having said that, like dobro said, these agents are actively hurting their clients. One bad injury, or even a down season, to guys like Bledsoe or Monroe and they're screwed.

    Have y'all ever thought that maybe the players, aka the one who should be making the decisions, think they are worth the max and refuse to take less? I can't knock a man for betting on himself and Monroe and Bledsoe will likely fetch a max deal next summer if healthy.

    Yeah, I'd think part of this is Monroe really, really not wanting to remain in Detroit. And I don't blame him.

    He jumped in too early on that Meeks contract. He overpaid for a 3pt shooter in year when those guys weren't getting the $$$.

    not a surprise, SVG is building the team around Drummond and Monroe simply does not fit. I wouldn't be surprise if he comes off the bench next year to play the Sixth Man Role, thank God one GM stood up and didnt give a max offer to a player who doesn't deserve it

    So now Detroit loses him for nothing. Yep, definitely know how that feels.

    I'm a bit surprised at all the :confused: posters here, in a market where players like Hayward and Parsons got the max you think Monroe/Bledsoe and their agents would settle for 8-12M a year? Maybe the Suns have a case considering Bledsoe's injury history but if I'm Greg Monroe, I'm only 24, I am healthy and I just averaged 15 and 9 last year and I just saw Chris Bosh make 30M, broken down Wade make 20M and role players Parsons and Hayward make 15M.

    And it's not really that big a risk either, sure maybe Monroe gets a career ending injury but the chances of that are quite slim considering he is still extremely young and his game relies more on skill and quickness rather than pure athleticism. He was also a lottery pick so he's made 3M per year since his rookie year, and the qualifying offer will also pay him similar money as well so even if he breaks his spine tom I think with several mill already in the bank he should be alright. What does happen if Monroe takes the less than max offer is that he will lose money because he's locked to a contract that is only gonna get better for free agents with the increasing capspace. Maybe he doesn't get that max contract next year, but waiting a year to find out is better than getting guaranteed money now and losing out on 15M over the course of your contract (if for example he got offered 12M per year for 5 years, and we don't know what Detroit's offer was maybe it was 8M).

    I wonder what Utah and Dallas thinks though, they just spent 15M on Hayward and Parsons when they could've used that money to get either Bledsoe or Monroe.
