Bucks Remain Interested In Trading Greg Monroe

Dec 26, 2016 11:24 AM

The Milwaukee Bucks continue to be interested in trading away Greg Monroe. Monroe is on a $17.14 million salary and has an opt-out clause for 17-18 with his salary of $17.88 million if he opts in.

Monroe was signed by the Bucks during the 2015 offseason but he has struggled to fit in beside Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker.

The Bucks also have John Henson and Miles Plumlee at center signed long-term.

Jason Kidd: Giannis Could Become Combination Of LeBron, Dirk

Dec 6, 2016 1:29 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo is playing a mix of point guard, both forward spots and even center on defense in some lineups.

Antetokounmpo is averaging 22 points, nine rebounds and six assists plus two steals and two blocks per game.

"Having being around some of the best in the world in LeBron (James) and Dirk (Nowitzki)," Jason Kidd said referencing former Team USA and Dallas Mavericks teammates, "wouldn't it be cool to have those two combined as one player? Maybe that could happen."

"I want to make great plays. It can be blocking a shot, it can be passing to an open teammate or dunking. Just great plays," Antetokounmpo said. "That's what makes me excited."

The Bucks signed Antetokounmpo to a four-year, $100 million extension in September.

"We're in the early stages of seeing where he can take us," Kidd said. "What he's done is show that he can handle a lot right now. There's going to be a time where we're going to raise the bar again and see how he does."
