Pistons planning for all scenarios with Monroe

Detroit Pistons president of basketball operations Stan Van Gundy says the franchise is "comfortable" with the outcome of every scenario involving Greg Monroe.
Van Gundy told reporters Tuesday - while previewing the team's plans for Thursday's NBA draft - he wants good value for the restricted free agent if the franchise chooses to give him up in a sign-and-trade deal.
He insists even if the 24-year-old power forward gets offered a maximum contract by another team, the Pistons may determine they can live with paying him, Andre Drummond and Josh Smith a lot of money to essentially play two positions.
Van Gundy also says having Monroe sign a one-year qualifying offer that would make him an unrestricted free agent would be OK for the team, too.
