Greg Monroe Signs 10-Day Contract With Bucks

12:27pm: Milwaukee has officially signed Monroe to a 10-day deal, the team announced in a press release.

8:10am: The Bucks have agreed to a 10-day contract with veteran center Greg Monroe, Michael Scotto of HoopsHype tweets.

Milwaukee has an open roster and don’t have anyone in protocols, so it appears it’ll be a standard 10-day deal.

According to Scotto, Monroe had multiple 10-day offers before choosing the defending champions. Monroe signed 10-day contracts with the Timberwolves and Wizards under the hardship exception earlier this season and appeared in five games. He averaged 5.6 PPG, 6.2 RPG and 2.4 APG in 16.2 MPG.

Prior to this season, Monroe hadn’t appeared in an NBA game since the 2018/19 campaign. In 637 career games, Monroe has averaged 13.1 PPG, 8.3 RPG and 2.1 APG. Monroe began his career with Detroit after being drafted in the 2010 lottery.

This is his second stint with Milwaukee. He appeared in 165 games with the Bucks from 2015-17.

Brook Lopez hasn’t played since the season opener and underwent back surgery in early December. Bobby Portis and Giannis Antetokounmpo have played out of position in his absence.
