Monroe will add depth to the Toronto front court. He’ll grab a few rebounds and is a solid inside scorer as well. His addition likely spells the end of the Lucas Nogueira era for the Raptors.
The Raptors had been the only team linked to Monroe. They needed the depth after dealing Jakob Poetl in the Kawhi Leonard deal, and that’s the role you can expect Monroe to fulfill.
