When the Milwaukee Bucks signed Greg Monroe in free agency, it was a big deal. Other teams in more marquee markets wanted Monroe and were willing to pay, but the fact that the big man chose Milwaukee was indicative of a sea change in player movement. Unfortunately, the on-court pairing hasn’t panned out remotely, as Monroe is stuck on the bench heading into the season and has been the subject of trade rumors for months now.

The most recent development in Monroe’s troubled saga with the team comes with a new, specific trade rumor courtesy of Gery Woelfel, who says he heard “whispers” about a deal that would send Monroe to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for Jeremy Lamb and Spencer Hawes.
