According to a report first published by TSN Sports Network, the Toronto Raptors are “very” interested in free agent big-man Greg Monroe in the coming days.
Last season, Monroe averaged 10.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game wearing a Boston Celtics’ jersey. The forward joined the Celtics in February and only saw action in 26 games during their 2017-2018 season campaign.

Monroe was selected seventh overall by the Detroit Pistons during the 2010 NBA Draft. He played five years in Detroit and eventually ended up singing with the Bucks in 2015. Monroe was then traded from the Bucks to the Phoenix Suns who released him after playing 20 games for them.

The 28-year-old big-man will likely play a veteran role for the Raptors if the team eventually signs him during the NBA’s offseason.
