Jazz Announce Signing Of Greg Monroe

The Jazz have officially announced the signing of veteran center Greg Monroe to a 10-day contract, per a team press release.Greg Monroe

Monroe, 31, is 6-foot-11 and the Jazz will be his fourth team of the season. He has already signed 10-day deals with the Timberwolves, Wizards and Bucks this year, as well as spending time in the G League.

So far, he has appeared in 10 NBA games overall, averaging 5.5 points and 5.2 rebounds. The former No. 7 overall draft pick (2010), Monroe has also played for the Pistons, 76ers, Celtics and Suns, all while under standard contracts.

“As backup center Hassan Whiteside battles a right foot sprain, Monroe will provide insurance on the depth chart behind Rudy Gobert as the Jazz try to hang onto fourth place in the Western Conference,” wrote Arthur Hill of Hoops Rumors.

It makes sense for the Jazz to officially sign Monroe on Monday, so he can be eligible for five games during his 10 days. He also will be eligible for the playoff roster.
