When asked about Hibbert's reaction to comments made by Bird and Vogel, Hibbert's agent, David Falk, replied with an e-mail to The Indianapolis Star: "We will respond at the appropriate time." Falk suggested his client would take his time to choose to opt-in for the final year of his contract. "We will decide that in late June," Falk wrote in an e-mail. If Hibbert decides to stick with the Pacers, he will get paid more than $15 million for the 2015-16 season. That number provides plenty of reasons to weather any ignominy as a backup center. However, the Pacers have been turning away from Hibbert for a while now. Indianapolis Star

Against that backdrop, the Pistons will make another run at Monroe this year, and they have five years and more money than any other team can pay him to offer. If they choose to do so, they might be back in the Monroe business next year, Falk said. "Absolutely, absolutely," Detroit is one of the teams Monroe would consider, Falk said. Booth Newspapers

Monroe instead signed a $5.479 million qualifying offer, turning down four years at about $14 million from Detroit -- "Most players would have taken the money," Falk said -- in exchange for the privilege of becoming an unrestricted free agent this summer. "Greg is one of the brightest clients I've ever represented," Falk said. "He's very mature, he's very intelligent, he's very thoughtful, he's very analytical. I laid out all the options and he decided that he wanted to have options." Booth Newspapers

Two days after Greg Monroe said he wasn't seeking a trade from the Detroit Pistons, his agent, David Falk, emphatically reiterated his client's position. "He made a commitment to Stan (Van Gundy) when he took the qualifying offer that he would work as hard as he could and help the team as best that he could and he would keep his mind open and at the end of the season, he would evaluate all of his options," Falk said. "That was his plan in July, and that's his plan in December and that will probably be his plan in February and will be his plan when the season ends." Their comments were in response to a Sporting News story that suggested Monroe wanted out of Detroit at any cost. Falk refuted that. USA Today Sports

"Greg is an intelligent man. I've represented him from day one. There are no other credible sources who would indicate if wants a trade," Falk said. "He does not want a trade. He wants to honor his commitment to Stan and give it the year and evaluate everything at the end of the season." USA Today Sports

Turner is 6-foot-7 and a mix of shooting guard and small forward, while Green, two inches taller, is a small forward or stretch 4. But there is some overlap. And the presence of Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk at power forward would seem to push Green toward the 3. “I’m not concerned,” said agent David Falk, who represents Green, Turner and Sullinger. “I don’t think Evan Turner coming in is going to supplant Jeff Green. But it’s impossible to figure out how Danny (Ainge) is going to solve the puzzle. That’s the challenge, and Danny’s a very intelligent man. I’m sure he will find a way to solve the puzzle.” Boston Herald

"We picked Boston as much for the historical culture and for Brad, as for anything else," Turner's agent David Falk told CSNNE.com on Tuesday. Falk, who also represents Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger, discussed how Boston's use of versatile players in the past influenced his client's decision to sign with the Celtics. There were two teams that Turner was seriously considering. Falk declined to reveal the other team, but a league source indicated that it was the Minnesota Timberwolves. "If you look back into the 1980s when you had Danny (Ainge) and (Dennis Johnson) in the backcourt, (Kevin) McHale and Larry upfront ... there was a lot of diversity in the way the players were used," Falk said. "Evan's a multi-dimensional player." CSNNE.com

The Pistons shot 32.1 percent from the 3-point line, which was 29th in the league last season. Sporting News
