Greg MonroeHt/Wt: 6-11 / 250 lbs
2009 Draft Profile - Greg MonroeMonroe has worked himself in to the top 10, potentially the top 5 of the 2009 NBA draft, after solid start to in his freshman year at Georgetown. Has excellent height and length, a 7’2” wingspan. Has an NBA body that runs the floor well. Is strong with his back to the basket, but even better when he’s facing the basket. Monroe has a good jump and hook shot that can be hit from a variety of angles. Good basketball IQ. Excellent ball handling skills for a big man.
Needs to be stronger on the boards, he has the size and ability, but doesn’t always use it. Doesn’t always hustle. Is it a lack of strength or drive that leads to him being pushed around down low? Lost some agility when weight went to around 250. Defensively he tends to get out of position sometimes.
