4. Greg Monroe - 21.2

The inclusion of Greg Monroe this high might just be the most shocking piece of knowledge on this entire list.

When Monroe signed with the Bucks in July of 2015, it was viewed as a potential turning point for the franchise, given what he could bring to this team. The big man's first two years with the Bucks were very productive, with Monroe averaging 13.5 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists and a steal per game, splitting time as both a reserve and a starter.

After playing just five games with the Bucks in 2017-18, Monroe was traded to the Phoenix Suns in the deal that brought Eric Bledsoe to Milwaukee. Several years later, during the 2021-22 NBA season, the Bucks brought Monroe back on a 10-day deal, where he played five more games for the franchise as they needed frontcourt depth with Brook Lopez missing time due to surgery.

Both of Monroe's stints with the Milwaukee Bucks were brief, but as highlighted by his placement on this list, he clearly made an impact. He was a key piece on those rising Bucks teams that helped fuel the success the team has had in recent memory. At the time, Monroe was viewed as one of the best free agent signings this team ever had. History is fun to look back on.
