And Stephen Silas had a great relationship with him, Monta credited Silas with helping him mature.
I still think Monta gets paid way too much for the next 3 years. We are entering into a CBA battle that will almost certainly result in a 'win' for the owners. Now is not the time to take on contracts of players that are overpaid. Rebuild through the draft and only take on trade of players that are under rookie contracts or soon to be expiring (as the Salary Cap will have to go down after the CBA).
