-RILEY: Greg Monroe is the best passer in college basketball. He makes people better around him.
-Q: Best passing big man? Or best passer no matter the position?
-RILEY: Yep. In college basketball. I don’t care who you’re talking about. Now John Wall was great, let’s don’t take that away from him. John Wall puts the ball right in people’s hands. But I’ll tell you what, Greg Monroe makes people better around him. You don’t see many big guys who facilitate or who help other people.
Similar to what Bill Walton did as a high-post player.
— Warriors GM Larry Riley This could be smokescreen, or it could be evidence that Petrie has no room to trade down to draft Monroe.
