Will Greg Monroe get help in the Pistons' frontcourt tonight? Could there be a certain foreign flavor with the team's No. 8 overall pick in the NBA draft?

Lithuanian Jonas Valanciunas, Czech Jan Vesely and Congolese big man Bismack Biyombo are strong first-round candidates for the Pistons.

"It would probably be fun having someone from overseas, just getting a chance to see someone else's lifestyle," Monroe told Vince Ellis of the Free Press at a charity event Tuesday. "Just talking to Jonas (Jerebko), I've learned about how things are in Sweden. Having someone else from over there, other than being a good teammate, learning about a different lifestyle, would be nice."
