Monroe originally started last season with the Bucks, but was traded to the Suns with draft picks in order to acquire Eric Bledsoe. Phoenix bought him out mid-season and the veteran decided to sign with the Celtics in February.  

The veteran big-man can provide the Raptors with leadership and depth off the bench, similar to the role he played last season with the Celtics. Last season, Monroe averaged 10.3 points and 6.9 rebounds while shooting a career-high 56.5 percent from the floor.
