In his first interview since his February suspension, Malik Monk said he's solid now, both mentally and physically.
“I’m in a great place with my mind and my body," Monk said. "The responsibility now is even bigger for me to stay like this, instead of swerving off a little bit.” Monk was having the best stretch of his career before the suspension, and it's well known that GM Mitch Kupchak is a fan -- he has repeatedly called Monk Charlotte's most talented player. Monk put on some muscle which helped him get to the rim more often, so if has some positive regression with his 3-point shooting he could make some noise in the final year of his rookie contract.
