Olimpia Milano announced Chris Monroe

Olimpia added another player for the play-offs in Italy.

The announcement came from the official website of Olimpia Milano. Chris Monroe(1.88-PG/SG) will be the new player of Olimpia until the end of the season. The Italian team is currently 4th in the regular season, pending one last game. If they're going to have a shot at the title they need to have depth in their bench. The announcement says that Monroe arrived in Milano this afternoon and he will undergo the standard medical examinations before he can practice with his new teammates tomorrow.

Monroe played in Italy before, for Napoli before leaving to play in France for Roanne where he was one of the top scorers of the ProA. This season he averaged 14.3 points 4.2 rebounds 2.5 assists in a total of 27 games in the A1 league playing for Paok. After the end of the play-offs, Monroe would be a free agent.
