The New York Knicks were expected to sign Monroe, but after meeting with the Bucks on Wednesday night, he decided to sign with Milwaukee.
Monroe was seeking a deal worth $15 million a year, but the Knicks weren't willing to offer him that kind of money.
The 25-year-old spent his first five seasons in the league with the Detroit Pistons, but he was uninterested in returning to the team. He averaged 15.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game last season.Back to the Milwaukee Bucks Newsfeed
