NBA Basketball – Monroe Adds Offense to Defensive-Minded Bucks

    Anybody who has seen the Milwaukee Bucks would agree that it is a young team on the rise. And let’s face it, after having won 15 games in the 2013-14 season, very few Chinese Bookie customers expected that they were going to be part of the playoffs this spring. But the fact of the matter is that Jason Kidd, who had lost the power struggle in New Jersey but was able to step right into Milwaukee’s situation, got them into the post-season, and they may have been able to make more noise if they hadn’t broken up the chemistry of the squad with the trade of Brandon Knight. But they acquired Michael Carter-Williams for the long-term good of the franchise, and now they are moving forward.

    Part of that is the free agent signing of Greg Monroe, who inked a three-year, $49.4 million contract with the team just recently. This move, without question, is an aggressive attempt to beef up the offensive capability of this club. They had already improved by leaps and bounds on defense, an area of the game that Kidd emphasized. And at this point it was time to get more scoring on the inside.


    Chinese Bookie patrons know that Monroe is very talented with regard to putting the ball in the hoop. The Georgetown alum averaged 15.9 points per game and added 10.2 rebounds, as he made for a rather formidable duo with Andre Drummond in Detroit. Of course, that didn’t help the Pistons make the playoffs. But Monroe is going to be of great use to the Bucks, because he can play either center or power forward, and thus he gives Kidd a lot of flexibility.

    The most likely scenario is that Monroe placed on the center spot, with the likes of Zaza Pachulia and John Henson rotating with him up front. Carter-Williams is the point guard, with Khris Middleton at shooting guard and budding superstar Giannas Antetokounmpo at small forward. Kidd potentially has a pretty good bench to draw from, with veteran players like O.J. Mayo, Grievis Vasquez and Jared Dudley, and there is a lot of talent with Rashad Vaughn, the first-round draft pick out of UNLV.

    Vaughn is priced at +5000 at Chinese Bookie to win the league’s Rookie of the Year award, and understandably he will have to fight for minutes with Vasquez and Mayo in the mix. But as far as Milwaukee fans are concerned, that’s a good thing.

    A lot of people criticized the trade of Knight at the deadline last season, but the rationale of the Bucks’ management was that they preferred to go with players with whom they could have a long-term deal. Knight did not fit that description, but Carter-Williams does. Now with Monroe, Milwaukee can have a few more pistons pumping, pardon the pun, than the center enjoyed in Detroit.
