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
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.
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.
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.
Hey man, write for my site! Do you have Facebook?
I like the Monroe comparisons but I believe Vlade Divac is a better comparison
Divac skill set for sure. Body way different. Im on facebook . My name is Bryce Doody add me. Just tell who you are! whats your sites link?
no monroe can really run the floor...and he is not explosive but he is alot more fluid and more moble then vlade is
I added you. I cannot put my site on here because I already got in trouble for it.
No worries homie I live in spain and play wheelchair basketball pro here so its late as heck lol
Wheelchair basketball is tougher than regular basketball lol. What team do you play for in Spain?
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.
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 the reason why he is not a 2-5 pick. I see him more as a 10-12 pick
he if he had a jumper...he would be another L Alderage
doody is a funny last name
This season I play for FC Barcelona which is part of the same team that Rubio plays for.
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)
