The Milwaukee Bucks have landed their big man.
A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that that free agent center Greg Monroe has chosen the Milwaukee Bucks over other big-market suitors like the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers. The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not been officially announced.
Yahoo Sports first reported the deal, which is for three years and $50 million. Monroe has a player option on the final year of the deal that will allow the 25-year-old to become a free agent again in two years if he chooses.
Monroe averaged 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds for the Detroit Pistons last year and was one of the most coveted big men on the market.
