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. Sep 26 - 7:09 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 14 - 12:14 AM

Greg Monroe scored 23 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block against the Magic on Monday.

It certainly wasn't his best defensive game, but Monroe had it working on the offensive side. The Bucks could wind up dealing Monroe in the offseason one summer after they locked him up to a max deal. He'll be a rest candidate on Wednesday with the Bucks possibly tanking to improve their lottery position.
Apr 11 - 9:19 PM

Rashad Vaughn, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe are starting against the Magic on Monday.

The Bucks aren't tanking this time for now. Monroe should be ready to go in a decent matchup for him. If the Bucks win, they'll be tied with the Magic for the 10 and 11 spots in the lottery.
Apr 11 - 5:44 PM

Greg Monroe (rest) is probable for Monday's game against the Magic.

He'll be back after getting the night off on Sunday. There's a chance that other players get the night off tonight, so DFS players might want to be careful on Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris MIddleton and Jabari Parker.
Apr 11 - 2:09 PM

Greg Monroe (rest) will not play Sunday vs. the 76ers, and Miles Plumlee will earn the start in his place.

The Bucks are playing the first game of a back-to-back set, and with a matchup against Philly, Jason Kidd will give Monroe the night off. Minutes don't alway translate to stats for Plumlee, although with a favorable matchup he could be worth a punt in DFS. John Henson should be able to earn some extended minutes off the bench tonight sans Monroe, and he's someone to consider as a streamer for those seeking some help in the shot blocking category.
Apr 10 - 3:44 PM

Greg Monroe scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting Friday, to go with eight boards, four assists and three turnovers through 28 minutes of play.

With the offense flowing through Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker in Milwaukee, and Miles Plumlee eating into his Monroe's minutes, Moose's value has taken a major hit. He's only been a late-round guy over the past six with averages of 12.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game while offering minimal contributions on the defensive end. He's still worth owning everywhere, but owners need to temper their expectations.
