Greg Monroe Signs With Puerto Rican Team

Veteran NBA center Greg Monroe has joined Puerto Rican club Osos de Manatí, the team officially announced (via Instagram; hat tip to Sportando).

The seventh overall pick in the 2010 draft, Monroe has appeared in a total of 646 NBA regular season games, averaging 13.0 points and 8.2 rebounds in 27.4 minutes per contest. The 32-year-old big man spent time with four different NBA teams last season, primarily on 10-day contracts, and put up 5.4 PPG and 4.6 RPG in 14 games (13.9 MPG) for the Timberwolves, Wizards, Bucks, and Jazz.

Monroe hasn’t been an NBA regular for the last several years and continues to add new stops to his international résumé. His first move overseas came in 2019, when he joined Germany’s Bayern Munich. Since then, he has also played in Russia and China. He left his Chinese club, the Shanxi Loongs, this January.

Monroe’s new team, Osos de Manatí, competes in Puerto Rico’s top basketball league, Baloncesto Superior Nacional. The 2023 BSN season will tip off on March 22.
