Description: Pistons forward Greg Monroe may be the odd man out in the Pistons front court.
Insight: Monroe is in a contract season. He was hoping to receive a big contract through restricted free agency, but that did not happen. Monroe returns to the Pistons frontcourt with Andre Drummond and Josh Smith. Both are signed long-term, and Monroe will not be back next season, so new coach Stan Van Gundy may already be planning for life after Monroe leaves.

Insight: The team would prefer to build around second-year center Andre Drummond. Detroit would be able to match any contract offer Monroe gets on the open market this summer though it doesn't look like they will. The Pistons could also work out a sign and trade deal like the one they pulled off last season to acquire Brandon Jennings from Milwaukee.
