A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston is reporting that Greg Monroe is flying to Washington, DC this morning while his deal with the Celtics is expected to become official prior to Thursday night’s game against the Wizards.
Monroe could very well make his debut tomorrow if everything goes according to the plan. He worked out at the Celtics’ practice facility the last couple days while the coaching staff prepared some video for him in order to get accustomed to the team’s offensive and defensive schemes. Monroe is expected to come off the bench and add some much needed help to the second unit while Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis will probably see their minutes drop.
