MORE: What Greg Monroe brings to the Raptors
Monroe began last season with the Bucks before being traded to the Suns in November. A contract buyout in February resulted in the 6-foot-11 big finishing the season with the Celtics. In 51 total games with three different teams, Monroe averaged 10.3 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per contest.
Monroe's role during his time with the Celtics varied; the Georgetown product played in 19.1 minutes per game in the regular season and on April 6, became the first Celtics centre to record a triple-double since 1987 (Robert Parish). During the playoffs, however, Monroe averaged just 9.5 minutes per game and did not play in eight of Boston's 19 postseason contests.
In Monroe, the Raptors gain a former lottery pick and savvy veteran who will provide more inside depth.
