Signing the QO is a lose-lose IMO. The risks to Monroe have already been noted. For us, it will be difficult to trade him unless he gives the next team assurances he will re-sign with them. Or they need to be willing to take the risk of a one-year rental - maybe they would do that if it meant unloading a bad contract - which is obviously not what we want. Our rebuilding process gets delayed another year while we go through this limbo. The only quick fix now is by trading Smith, which I don't particularly want to do.
