2010 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Greg Monroe


Position: Power Forward

Size: 6-11, 250

School: Georgetown, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • One of most versatile big men in college basketball
  • Great handles which allows him to take slower defenders off the dribble and slash to the basket
  • Good footwork in the post
  • Outstanding passer which fits perfectly in Geogetown's unselfish Princeton-style offense
  • Runs the floor well and finishes strong in transition
  • Nice touch on his jumper with range out to the three-point area
  • Uses his length to his advantage on the defensive end
  • Has a tendency to draw fouls and is a decent free-throw shooter
  • Good basketball IQ



    Weaknesses:
  • An average, but not great athlete
  • Lacks the physical, killer instinct when playing down low
  • Defers to his teammates rather than trying to establish himself as the aggressor
  • Tends to get pushed around by more physical post players
  • Too often relies on his dominant left hand, as his right hand is clearly the weaker of the two
  • Must become more consistent with his outside shot

    Summary: Monroe clearly has the talent to be a top pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, but has yet to really establish himself as a consistent, go-to college player. Scouts keep waiting for him to better assert himself which he definitely has the capability of doing, but has yet to show. I once thought he was a top-five pick, but his stock is dipping some as he likely is more of a late-lottery selection.

    Player Comparison: Chris Bosh. I'll admit I am definitely overshooting a best-case scenario with this comparison, but their skill sets are similar. Aside from the obvious left-handed parallel, both players rely on their smoothness and high post game rather than banging around down low. Bosh is much more assertive on the offensive end, and if Monroe ever shows that steady aggression, this comparison might not seem ridiculous.
