Greg Monroe asked the Detroit Pistons front office to take a look at Andre Drummond.
The Pistons ended up selecting Drummond with the ninth pick of the 2012 draft.
"I mean, there's always somebody every year who can help your team," Monroe said. "I'm not sure of everyone who's a (free agent) but there's someone who can help us."
With Jason Maxiell and Will Bynum expected to come off the books, it seems Joe Dumars will have significant salary cap space this offseason.
Monroe is willing to give his input on future player moves.
"If he puts some people that he has in mind in front of me, if he asks me my opinion, I'll give it," Monroe said. "It doesn't mean it'll be the right one or that they'll go ahead with it, but if he asks me, of course, I'll answer. Our better days are definitely ahead."
