Greg Monroe, Khris Middleton teammates again with Bucks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2015) It's official -- center Greg Monroe and shooting guard Khris Middleton are Milwaukee Bucks. The two have rejoined after spending the 2012-13 season together in Detroit.

Middleton has been in Milwaukee since his rookie year and is coming off his best season. He averaged a career-high 13.4 points and peaked at 46.7 percent shooting.

Monroe is the team's premier free-agent signing. He signed a three-year, $50 million deal to leave the Pistons after a career-high 10.2 rebounds per game last year.

"I feel like this was the best fit for me," Monroe told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "It was purely a basketball decision. ... Nothing else mattered but basketball to me and that's why I'm here."


Bucks make Greg Monroe signing official


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2015) The Bucks officially signed center Greg Monroe on Thursday, the team announced.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but previous reports indicated the deal was for three years and $50 million.

"Greg is a skilled low-post scorer and rebounder, and will add a whole new dimension to our young roster," Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. "He's just 25 years old and still scratching the surface of his potential. I'm looking forward to helping him develop along with our other talented young players."


Report: C Greg Monroe to sign max deal with Bucks


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) In what would be a surprising move, Yahoo Sports is reporting that free-agent center Greg Monroe will sign a max-level deal with the Bucks on Thursday, choosing Milwaukee over the perceived front-running Knicks. The deal is believed to be for three years and $50 million. 

Monroe averaged 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game for the Pistons last season, and left Detroit seeking more opportunity to produce. The center met with the Knicks, who had been the presumed favorite for his services for several months. 

Monroe has career averages of 14.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in five years with Detroit. 


Center-poor Lakers to meet with Greg Monroe, DeAndre Jordan


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jordan is a defensive specialist and premier rebounder who has struggled mightily hitting foul shots for the cross-town Clippers and boasts virtually no offensive range. He led the NBA at 15.0 rebounds per game, but shot a horrific 41.7 percent at the line.
