Greg Monroe has agreed to sign with the Boston Celtics on a one-year, $5 million deal.

Monroe also considered signing with multiple other teams, including the Pelicans. The Pelicans were only able to offer $2.2 million though they did promise him the opportunity to be their starting center. Boston was able to offer more money with less assurances on playing time.

Monroe agreed to a buyout this week with the Suns.
