Raptors Eying Big Man

Monroe a Candidate for Raptors?

Toronto Raptors Interested in Signing Greg Monroe to Shore up Front Court

Following a blockbuster move that sent Jakob Poeltl packing, a need was created up front for the Toronto Raptors.

With young big man Lucas Nogueira off the books and more than likely moving on from the franchise, shoring up their front court, primarily off the bench has become a legitimate necessity. One name in particular who the Raptors have reportedly been eying is the former star big man Greg Monroe who has seen his stock decline over the past couple of season as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics.

While no longer the player he was in his days with the Detroit Pistons, Monroe remains a gifted scorer at the five, with a good face-up game as well as the ability to provide a physical presence in the paint. Defensively, he wouldn’t provide much rim protection, but overall, he would most definitely be a suitable candidate to fill the team’s 14th roster spot.

Monroe averaged 10.3-points and 6.9-rebounds per game last season, while shooting a very respectable 53% from the field.
