Timberwolves sign center Greg Monroe for remainder of season – NBA Blog


The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed center Greg Monroe for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.

Per the Minneapolis Star Tribune, “Monroe, 31, played three games with Minnesota in December on a 10-day deal during the Wolves’ COVID-19 outbreak that saw eight players miss games. This time, the 6-foot-11-inch Monroe adds his much needed size to the lineup for the final two regular season games and the probable play-in tournament next week.”

Monroe has played in 12 games this season for the Milwaukee Bucks, Timberwolves, Utah Jazz and Washington Wizards, averaging 5.2 points on 57.1% shooting and 4.7 rebounds per game. His best game of the season came during Minnesota’s 108-103 victory over the Boston Celtics on Dec. 27 where he saw his first regular season NBA minutes since Apr. 10, 2019, registering a season-high 11 points, a season-best nine rebounds and a season-high six assists in 25:01 minutes of action off the bench.

The 6-11 center from Georgetown has played in 644 career games (417 starts) with nine different franchises, averaging 13.0 points on 51.4% shooting and 8.2 rebounds. His best season in the NBA came during the 2012-13 season with the Detroit Pistons where he appeared in 81 games (all starts) and averaged career-highs in scoring (16.0 ppg), assists (3.5 apg), steals (1.3 spg) and minutes (33.2 mpg).

Monroe will be available for tonight’s game against the San Antonio Spurs and will wear uniform #55.
