The Detroit Pistons are lucky to have a talent like Greg Monroe. He’s good. But can be better. Here’s the Detroit Free Press reporting:

Add Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks to the chorus.

For power forward Greg Monroe to take the next step in his development, he must become proficient at knocking down midrange jumpers.

That has been known for some time, but Cheeks said he mentioned it again to Monroe during Wednesday’s practice.

“I just told him today that if I was him, I’d practice that jump shot right at that left and right elbow,” Cheeks said.
