“Of course you want to play. That’s why we do what we do,” Price said. “You want to play. But you just never know. You never know what’s ahead. Whatever role is my role, I’ll embrace it, whether it’s being here as a third guard and being kind of a security blanket or whatever you want to call it. I’m at the stage of my career where I want to win and I want to be able to help a team out in whatever needs they need me to do so. That’s something I would love to come back and be a part of this organization next year. We’ll see how it works out.” Los Angeles Daily News

Detroit Pistons big man and 2015 unrestricted free agent Greg Monroe doesn't want to talk about the specifics of his free agency during the season. But he did say on Wednesday morning that he will be willing to meet with the New York Knicks and president Phil Jackson this summer. “If they’re interested, I’m going to,” Monroe said after the Pistons shootaround at Madison Square Garden.

League sources confirm that Monroe will be a top target for the Knicks in free agency. Recent reports have stated that Monroe will be the team’s top priority. “He will definitely be near the top of the list," one league source with knowledge of the team's thinking said earlier this week. ESPN.com

Monroe doesn't envision having a “prolonged” decision-making process this summer. He can meet with teams on July 1. "Obviously, I won’t get all the fanfare that some of the bigger free agents might get, so I’ll meet those people that are interested and I’ll go from there," Monroe said. "I’m gonna talk to whoever wants to talk." ESPN.com

Lin on Tuesday didn't close the door completely on re-signing with the Lakers this summer, but he's back where he was before as a basketball nomad, still searching for a place in the NBA that feels really right. He said his goal in free agency will be to find "the best place that I can fit in." About the Lakers, Lin did his best to accent the positive in saying: "I don't know where I'm going to be next year, but never say never. I would definitely keep this open. It's not like this is last resort." Bleacher Report
