Center Greg Monroe will sign a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the remainder of the season, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Monroe had productive stints in Minnesota, Washington, Utah and Milwaukee this season, completing a 10-day with the Jazz on Wednesday.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) April 7, 2022
Monroe recently finished up his 10-day contract with the Jazz – in which he averaged 4.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 8.7 minutes through three games of the team’s five games – Monroe joins the Timberwolves with two contests remaining before the start of the postseason.
Currently seated comfortably as the seventh seed in the West and two games removed from the sixth seed, the Timberwolves could slide out of the Play-In with wins over the San Antonio Spurs (34-45) tonight and against the Chicago Bulls (45-35) on Sunday.
The 6’11 center had a productive stint with the organization in December when he signed his first 10-day of the season, appearing in three games while putting up 6.7 points, 7.0 boards, and 3.7 assists in 21.0 minutes per game.
Monroe’s leadership in the locker room and familiarity with the postseason – he has appeared in 27 playoff games throughout his career – will be an added benefit as the Timberwolves’ final roster spot heading into their first postseason appearance since 2018.
