Greg Monroe will exercise his $17.8 million player option with the Bucks for the 2017-18 season. That means he'll be an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2018, but for next year, he'll remain with Milwaukee serving as a spark plug off the bench. Monroe put in averages of 11.7 points, 6.6 boards, 2.3 dimes and 1.1 steals per game this past season on 53.3 percent shooting, which was good enough for top-100 value in standard 9-cat leagues. He should come off the board towards the later rounds on draft day.

General manager John Hammond said he has not talked to Greg Monroe about his player option. The deadline for Monroe to decide will be on NBA Draft night on June 22. Monroe is 26 years old and his player option is worth $17.9 million, but he may opt to hit the market with the increase coming to the salary cap.

Greg Monroe scored 16 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals in 23 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday. The Bucks couldn't give him away in a trade at the deadline last year, but he's been terrific during this series. In the three games, Monroe averaged 16.0 points, 8.7 boards and 1.3 steals to help the Bucks take a 2-1 lead The Raptors haven't really gone after Monroe as a defender and the continue to struggle with their perimeter attack. In other words, this is close to an ideal matchup for Monroe based on how the game is flowing.

Greg Monroe played well again in Game 2 vs. Toronto, scoring 18 points in just 22 minutes. He deserved to play more than he did tonight, finishing 6-of-9 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line with four rebounds, one assist and one steal. We're seeing a lot of small ball in this series, so that could keep Monroe's minutes in check -- he also played just a couple minutes in the fourth quarter. After struggling mightily vs. the Raptors during the regular season, Monroe is averaging 16.0 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steals in 24.0 minutes through the first two games of the series, so you would think coach Jason Kidd goes to him more often from here on out.

Greg Monroe scored 17 points in a 90-82 win over the 76ers on Saturday. Finally. Monroe has been a nightmare to own recently and was held to single-digit points in his previous four games. His minutes were still low tonight (22), but he hit 8-of-14 shots with five rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals. He's annoying to own, but at least his owners don't have to worry about him resting in the final two games of the season with Milwaukee fighting for seeding.

Greg Monroe scored 17 points in a 90-82 win over the 76ers on Saturday. Finally. Monroe's lines have been straight out of a Stephen King novel lately and he was held to single-digit points in his previous four games. His minutes were still low tonight (22), but he hit 8-of-14 shots with five rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals. He's annoying to own, but he really only needs 20+ minutes to be productive and at least his owners don't have to worry about him resting in the final two games with Milwaukee fighting for seeding.
