The Bucks are "preparing for the possibility" that Greg Monroe opts into his deal for the 2017-18 season, sources told ESPN's Zach Lowe.
You could literally "prepare for the possibility" of anything, so we're not reading too far into this one. Besides, Monroe could be traded before we even reach that juncture. Oct 22 - 6:08 PM

Greg Monroe scored 12 points off the bench with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 23 minutes vs. the Pistons on Monday.

The biggest takeaway from tonight is that Monroe's usage rate could actually be a lot higher off the bench, as he attempted 19 shots from the field, connecting on six of them. Miles Plumlee is the favorite to start, but Monroe should soak up the majority of the center minutes, assuming the Bucks give up on trying to trade him.

Greg Monroe and Michael Carter-Williams will rest on Saturday.

We'll get to see more John Henson and Miles Plumlee tonight. Henson has played better than Plumlee, so that is something to watch. Both could wind up starting with Monroe in the second unit.

Marc Stein of ESPN said the Hornets have no interest in Greg Monroe.

There was a report that the Bucks offered Monroe to the Hornets in exchange for Jeremy Lamb and Spencer Hawes, but the Hornets are "committed" to Roy Hibbert. Monroe has very little trade value around the league because he can opt out his deal this summer, but the Bucks will likely continue to shop his name around. He's still a mid-round pick and has looked solid in the preseason so far.

Greg Monroe came off the bench on Monday with 15 points, nine rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks in 17 minutes.

He is going to come off the bench to start the year, but that might actually help his fantasy value. Monroe will get better matchups and he would likely be among the top bigs for usage rate. He's a fine mid-round pick after the top bigs come off the board.
Oct 3 - 10:54 PM

Greg Monroe said on Monday coming off the bench is news to him.

Earlier today, coach Jason Kidd said Monroe will be going into training camp in the second unit. With all the talk of Monroe being on the block this summer, things could go south quickly for the Bucks big man. Monroe was really effective off the bench last year, so the news of him coming off the bench isn't really a fantasy downgrade.

Greg Monroe and Michael Carter-Williams will move to the bench to start training camp.

They will be replaced by Miles Plumlee and Rashad Vaughn. Monroe did come off the bench for 12 games last year and arguably played better in those, averaging 14.3 points, 9.0 boards, 2.3 dimes, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals on 52.9 percent from the field. There's plenty of talk of Monroe being moved in a trade, so maybe that is a factor here along with the Khris Middleton (hamstring) injury. Monroe is a decent pick in the late middle rounds of standard leagues.

New teammate Mirza Teletovic said he thinks Greg Monroe is the Bucks' leader off the court.

This isn't really a big deal or anything, but we found it interesting based on the narrative of Monroe likely headed out of town. Of course, Teletovic just joined the team this summer, so he might not have a strong pulse on his new team. For now, it still seems like Monroe is a good bet to be traded.
Sep 26 - 2:34 PM

The Bucks reportedly "accelerated their attempts" to trade Greg Monroe this summer, according to Gery Woelful of the Journal Times.

This report adds Monroe's agent, David Falk, insists he isn't surprised the big man is still with the Bucks. "There’s been a lot of speculation, but that’s part and parcel for the NBA,’’ Falk said. "You always have rumors and one percent of them come true.’’ Over the summer, there were rumors of the Knicks, Celtics and possibly others interested in picking up Monroe. Even if he's traded, Monroe should find himself in a position for solid minutes.
Sep 19 - 6:23 PM

Marc Stein of ESPN said that Greg Monroe wants to end up in New Orleans.

Monroe was linked to the Pelicans at the trade deadline last season, so maybe the two sides will start talking again. Monroe's name has been in the rumor mill for a while now and he's one of the most likely players to be traded. However, the Bucks won't be able to get much in return, as Monroe has a player option for the 2017-18 season.

The Knicks are reportedly interested in trading for Greg Monroe.

The Bucks has made it painfully clear that Monroe is available, and the Knicks seem like a realistic landing spot given that they were one of his primary suitors when he was a free agent. Sam Amico reports that the Knicks would likely need to get a third team involved in order to strike a deal, and that if a trade were to go down, it likely wouldn't happen until December.

Greg Monroe is available via trade, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Stein reports that Monroe is available now that the Bucks have re-signed Miles Plumlee, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see the big man on the move. Monroe's fantasy upside is a tad limited, but a change in scenery would likely provide a nice boost to his fantasy value.
Jul 19 - 12:05 PM

The Celtics have interest in Greg Monroe, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.

Additionally, J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic adds the Bucks are "combing for young bigs" to prepare for Monroe's eventual departure. The Celtics have eight picks and a solid backcourt, so adding a big man is a high priority for them. Monroe is not a great fit with the Bucks, so he could be one of the big names changing teams. Coach Brad Stevens would really help the Moose.
Jun 23 - 5:26 PM

According to Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops, the Bucks are aggressively shopping Greg Monroe.

Monroe seemed like a poor fit in Milwaukee this season on the defensive end and this isn't the first time that we've heard that the Bucks are trying to trade him. Monroe is under contract with the Bucks through the 2016-17 season and he also has a player option for the 2017-18 season, but it's hard to imagine the Bucks getting a lot in return for the big man. If Monroe is traded, that would bode really well for the outlook of John Henson and it would make Utah center Jakob Poeltl an interesting option with the No. 10 pick in the draft.
Jun 20 - 12:23 PM

Greg Monroe scored seven points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 13 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He did not play in the second half with the Bucks basically tanking. Monroe could be on the trade block this season with the Bucks possibly changing up their roster. Monroe was pretty effective for fantasy owners with fourth-round value in his 79 games. He's in a good spot for fantasy value in Milwaukee even though the young guns will get more shots.
