Report: Greg Monroe signing 10-day contract with Celtics

NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

According to Shams Charania, the Boston Celtics are signing Greg Monroe to a 10-day contract.

The former Celtic was signed by the Toronto Raptors in the offseason but was traded to the Nets and released during the year. He played 38 games, averaged 4.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per game for the Raps.

Monroe showed flashes of his talent for a shorthanded Celtics team last season. With Baynes dinged up and Al Horford looking for some rest, this may be a move to eat up some minutes with a big man that already knows the system and how to fit in on this roster.

Note: The Celtics signing Moose doesn’t close the door on picking up Thomas Robinson.
