Net Impact
Greg Monroe is arguably the biggest free agent signing in Milwaukee Bucks history and he is going to show why this season. As the number one scoring option on a team that didn’t have one last year I think he is going to shine.

Not only does he bring the Bucks a consist 15-20 points per game but he will provide 8-12 rebounds a game too. That consistency in two areas Milwaukee struggled with the most last season is going to be more than enough to make up for his defensive deficiencies.

From two pre-season games it appears that Monroe will be just what we thought he would be: an effective scorer (who gets to the free throw line), elite rebounder, good passer, and average defender.

As the Bucks get more comfortable with him, and he gets more comfortable with the Bucks, good things should happen.
