The Boston Celtics added depth to their post rotation for the playoff push by signing experienced big man Greg Monroe. According the The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the two sides agreed to a 10-day contract on Friday. Monroe, a 28-year-old veteran center, hasn’t appeared on the court since the Raptors cut ties with him prior to the All-Star break.

For the Celtics, Monroe will provide added depth until Aron Baynes recovers from his current ankle injury. Prior to departing Toronto, the former Georgetown standout had appeared in 38 games with two starts in the 2018-19 season. After his release from the Suns last year, Monroe averaged 19.1 minutes in 26 games with the Celtics.

Monroe was selected in the with the No. 7 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. The Trail Blazers pursued Monroe in the summer of 2015 before he eventually decided to join the Bucks.
