I’d actually call Monk a winner. Yeah, he fell, but no one’s going to give a shit when the season starts, it’ll be all about how he’s performing, and that’s a darn good spot he landed in. They really need some shooting on the wing. He’ll get good minutes. He gets to meet Frank Kaminsky. I’m not sure how much money he lost out on by falling, but it’s about the second contract, and he’ll have a nice chance to show himself to be worthy of a lot of money between now and then in games of at least mild importance.
