MILPower Forward/Center: 6’11, 265 lbs; 7th year, Georgetown

 NBA Role: scoring, hybrid big • Star UnderDOG

Greg Monroe’s an adept, scoring big with a diversified skill set on offense – makes quick, direct movements…before you know it, he’s sealed off, established position and has gotten to his ideal spot; super strong, lefty force who’s a point of emphasis on scouting reports – not saying you need to shut him down to defeat Milwaukee but if he has a huge night, Monroe can set the tone w/ easy buckets; close to All-Star status as a scorer and rebounder but Monroe’s poor defense and lack of passing (once he catches it deep, the ball’s going up) has held him back from reaching the next level; Moose is starting to fit in w/ the young Bucks – can he develop into a go-to guy (off the bench) for Coach Kidd?* 

*not many teams have a true low-post presence off the bench – fruitful role for Monroe

Signature Move: faceup, drive, short hook
