NBA Free Agency: Phoenix Suns Have Interest In Greg Monroe

Now that Greg Monroe is the biggest name left in NBA free agency the rumor mill is starting to fire up again.  The latest is from NBA Sports and Huffington Post Sport reporter Jordan Schultz, who is hearing the Greg Monroe might find a new home……in the Western Conference.

The Suns are an unexpected contender in the Greg Monroe sweepstakes considering their focus on signing restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe.  But Phoenix Suns negotiations with their point guard have stalled and the recent signing of Sacramento Kings point guard Isasiah Thomas could mean the Bledsoe is on the way out.  That would leave enough cap space for the Suns to make Monroe a top of the market offer and steal him out from under Stan Van Gundy.

The loss of Greg Monroe would bring a quick end to any trade talks involving Josh Smith who is rumored to be on the Pistons trading block. Unless of course a Josh Smith trade precedes the signing of Monroe potentially leaving a gaping hole in the front court.

It would certainly be an interesting turn of events if the Pistons roster was missing both Smith and Monroe come training camp.
