Greg Monroe recently hit the free agency market and he immediately became the most coveted big man available. The Phoenix Suns bought out Monroe just a couple months after acquiring him earlier in the season from the Milwaukee Bucks as a part of the Eric Bledsoe trade.

Monroe was linked to his hometown New Orleans Pelicans and a few other playoff teams. But with an opportunity to win, get some valuable playing time and get a pretty nice payday for the remainder of the season plus the playoffs, it was kind of a no-brainer for Monroe to pick the Celtics.

Following comes from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Boston now adds a valuable post scorer to an already deep roster who can both play with Al Horford and be the focus of a second unit for Boston. His defense isn’t always the greatest but playing alongside either Aron Baynes or Al Horford should help.
