Greg Monroe to the Pelicans?

With talk of the Pelicans asking Detroit about a sign and trade for Greg Monroe, I tried to figure out what this could look like. Although they could easily just do a Ryan Anderson/Monroe swap, this looks like an ample oppurtunity to unload expensive players who have overstayed their welcome. Could Josh Smith and Eric Gordon be swapped in this trade too? The Pistons add by subtracting Smith, paying the same salary, yet also finding a much needed perimeter playing when/if Gordon is healthy. For the Pelicans, they probably would like to cut their losses, and at least bring some talent in as a result. While Smith might not be a great fit, like most teams, he could definitely work well with Davis at times he is moved to the 5. Thoughts?
