When the Phoenix Suns sent Eric Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks, they received protected draft picks as well as veteran big man Greg Monroe. According to team insider John Gambadoro, the Suns have not yet decided what to do with the 27-year-old Monroe. Kevin Pelton wrote about why Phoenix may try to trade the 6-foot-11 big (via ESPN): “The Suns could also maximize their return for Bledsoe by shipping Monroe to a third team prior to the deadline. He could have some value as a quality player on an expiring contract between now and February, though the market for centers is limited right now.” If they do ship Monroe before Dec. 6, they could then offer Mike James (who has taken over as the starting point guard) an NBA contract rather than his two-way deal.
