Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Kelly Dwyer) — Dwyane Wade looks on. (Getty Images) No part of the Chicago Bulls’ 2016-17 season looked good.

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Kelly Dwyer) — Greg Monroe goes left. (Getty Images) If he wanted to stick with a growing club with playoff potential, Greg Monroe could have re-signed with the Detroit Pistons in 2015. If he wanted to work out of a big city, New York’s Knicks were always an option – Phil Jackson reportedly had Monroe near the top of his free agent list that summer.
