Well nice pickup. I am surprised he is only min player. He definitely can shoot and gives us youth and athleticism. I like this signing a lot. Fun player to watch.

So we can still S&T Dennis or bring him back as a 6th man, and we have our MMLE correct?

Monk is a really nice under the radar get.

Young.

Can hit the 3 - 40% on 5 shots a game

Plays hard on defense, albeit is only 6'3 with a 6'7 wingspan. Best article I could find below was this:

https://swarmandsting.com/2020/06/07/charlotte-hornets-defensive-dynamism-malik-monk/2/

Never imagined they'd grab a young kid like that who can hit the 3. Screw Mills, I like this kid as a fit for now...and the future.

As an fyi, last year Monk had 3 point games of 9-13, and 6-11.

How do you like dem apples?

Monk is a horrendous defender. Like Lou Williams bad, but he could give us Lou-Williams-type scoring off the bench.

I have not run across an article suggesting horrendous D. Anything you can point to?

He finally started shooting like people were hoping he would last year. Hopefully, that's the trend going forward.

But Vogel's got work to do on his D.

His basketball-reference page.

His DPBM was -2.3 and his DRtg was 116 last season, which means he basically was out there with a matador cape last season. His career DBPM is about the same as Lou Williams.

I did just see this:

https://www.atthehive.com/2021/2/6/22267561/charlotte-hornets-malik-monk-the-monkaissance

Supporting your take (defensive stats - to me - need to put in some context)

With that said, reading what else I saw it sounds like he can be taught and gives effort.

Young enough for we will see.

I think FO plan is to go from defensive identity last two years to offensive identity... just not sure we can match firepower of others teams

Great pick up!!! Surprised the Hornets did not extend an offer (big mistake on their part). Watched almost every Hornets game last year, and this guy can ball and catch fire in a hurry! Great shooter and plays above the rim!

He got suspended for cocaine use. It would make sense why Charlotte let him go.
