The deal is reportedly worth $2.2 million, as Monroe will be the backup center behind Jonas Valanciunas. The 28-year-old averaged 10.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 2.2 assists with three different teams this past season. He played in 51 games after starting the season with the Milwaukee Bucks, before moving on to the Phoenix Suns, and then ending up in the playoffs with the Boston Celtics. He appeared in 11 postseason games and averaged 4.8 points and 3.2 rebounds in those contests.
Monroe was drafted seventh overall by the Detroit Pistons in the 2010 NBA Draft. He is now entering his ninth NBA season, and has career numbers of 13.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.1 steals in that time.
