Greg Monroe will continue to be a trade candidate ahead of the deadline as he is scheduled to become a restricted free agent.
"It does, to be honest, especially when we're still trying to get things right here, and then to kind of see that stuff. ... I just try to focus on what we're doing here. I'm here. If that changes, then I'll move forward. But up until then, or if it never does, I'm just going to focus on playing these games and trying to win these games," Monroe said Wednesday.
Monroe splits time between center and power forward with the Detroit Pistons.
Monroe averages 14.3 points and 8.7 rebounds this season, his lowest since his rookie season. Monroe has adjusted to playing with Josh Smith.
"It's definitely been a change," Monroe said. "It's still a little bit of an adjustment. Like I've said, it was always more of an adjustment on the defensive end, guarding different kinds of players. But offensively, it is kind of a new system we're running, obviously, with new players and coaching staff. So it has been a little transition for me."
