JULY 28: Veteran center Greg Monroe is close to a deal with BC Khimki, a source tells Emiliano Carchia of Sportando (Twitter link).

The seventh overall pick in the 2010 draft, Monroe spent nine years in the NBA before heading to Germany to play for Bayern Munich in 2019/20. He averaged a team-high 12.9 PPG and 6.8 RPG in 28 EuroLeague games.

As an NBA player, Monroe averaged 13.2 PPG and 8.3 RPG in 632 career regular season games with the Pistons, Bucks, Suns, Celtics, Raptors, and Sixers. The 30-year-old logged 43 appearances in 2018/19 with Toronto, Boston, and Philadelphia, playing in another 10 postseason contests for the 76ers.

Monroe was said to be drawing interest from another Russian team, Zenit St. Petersburg, earlier in the month. If he finalizes a deal with Khimki, he’ll spent the 2020/21 season playing in Moscow.

    Those stats are better than most bench bigs. And he didn’t even peak. This was a talented big. Who could play 3-4 and step out and guard on perimeter. There must be more to his demise. Some players just don’t have the passion for their sport. Seems crazy right. I mean you got maybe 10-12 yrs. As an elite athlete. God sometimes chooses the wrong bodies lol.

      He can’t switch on defense and he has no outside game. Pretty much any big in the NBA has to do at least one of those things these days.

    Where’s the HoopsRumors story about the NBA’s China/Uighur “basketball” camp that involved physical and mental abuse of minors? I mean it was put out by ESPN, so it seems newsworthy and reliable enough to be aggregated, nah?
