Greg Monroe scoutng report.

Hey all I been on site for a while now, but now am looking write for sites, Is anyone interested. Before the draft from here on out I will be writing scouting reports on players who may or are in the draft.
Todays choice Greg Monroe.

Greg Monroe Sophomore 6-11 245 20 years old.
Position in NBA- PF/C

Positives-

Has wide set of skills for big man. While playing for 2 years with Georgetown he developed many skills centers wished they had. Georgetowns Princeton Style offense showed off his good passing skills and decision making skills. Per game he avearges just little shy of 3 a game. He is also left handed which throws opponents off. Monroe has very good length which has allowed him this past season to average over 1.5 steals and blocks. Has good speed on the court from end to end. Teammates and coaches have nothing but praise for him on and off the court.

Negatives-

For his skill level he is very passive, but maybe this is the system he plays in. Monroe needs to develop more post moves, especially to his right side. By stronger opponents he can be pushed around in the post. He has rrange on jump shot, but at this point he needs to make it at higher percentage. Also has some problems with turnovers, but this could be limited when not in Princeton Offense. He could also stand knock down free throws at higher rate.

Player comparsion-
Best case- Troy Murphy/Lamarcus Aldridge
Worst case- Antoino Mcdyess after surgery

Draft Preidction- I think he will fall somewhere between 7-13 in this years draft. Teams such as Hornets, Pacers and Bucks will give him hard look.

Since this is my first article of this type tell me what you all think and if I should do it some more.

I like the Monroe comparisons but I believe Vlade Divac is a better comparison

I like Monroe, I think he's a pretty sure thing in this draft. Should be a nice number 2 guy in the league who can do alot of different things.

Monroe

People are sleeping on him, he should be at least 2-5 pick. Sometimes finesse is better than power( cousins) If he develops a jumper he will be deadly

His lack of explosiveness is

His lack of explosiveness is the reason why he is not a 2-5 pick. I see him more as a 10-12 pick

oh it's nice. but a few

oh it's nice.

but a few things there..you should know Greg is still only 19 years old and he is averaging almost 4 assists per game(actually this is why i have him #5 on my board he comparing him to others as a PF or as a scorer , rebounder, double-double guy, comparing post skills and so on..but no one is even close to his playmaking ability he could avg as much as 5apg one day)
