Unless there is an injury, just does not seem like there is any capacity for Monroe to play out of his mind to garner that kind of money. The guy would probably play 28-30 minutes in between PF and C. That's fewer minutes than he got the last three years. He had the same wins shared last year and two years ago (5.9). Unless he magically becomes a great shooter or great defender, with fewer minutes and a very similar situation to the one the past two years, does not seem to me like he could dramatically improve his chances of getting more money. On the other hand, he could find a better situation (for him) or a bigger stage to play on in LA or NY. That might be the deciding factor, but we've got until October until he has to decide....the waiting game continues.
