If the Pelicans end up losing DeMarcus Cousins in free agency, ESPN's Zach Lowe identified Greg Monroe as a name to keep an eye on.
Monroe to the Pellies was a popular idea back when he was stuck on the Bucks and Anthony Davis kept getting hurt, but now it looks like he's one of their backup plans. It was a very poor season from Moose, though most of that has to do with all the upheaval rather than anything he did on the court. In the right role he can still land near the top-100 as a solid traditional big man, and he could be playing with quite a chip on his shoulder after this tumultuous season. Likely to come cheap in free agency, Monroe could be a nice value play among the second and third-tier players on the market this summer.
