Monk, who entered the NBA as the 11th overall in the 2017 NBA Rookie Draft, is called a promising shooter. His potential exploded last season.
Monk, who played for the Charlotte Hornets as a six-man, averaged 11.7 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.1 assists last season. In particular, the three-point shot success rate has been raised to 40.1 percent, making it a strong outer resource. Monk is expected to play an energizer with Kendrick Nun in the Lakers.

Monk said, “You can learn a lot from an organization called the LA Lakers. “There are ways to be a professional, how to train smart, and how to be a real player.”
As Monk said, the Lakers have a lot to learn. This is because the Lakers are a team with a large number of top players.
The Lakers have LeBron James, one of the best players of all time. All-star bigman Anthony Davis is in good shape, and Mr Triple-Double Russell Westbrook has joined the Lakers. Veteran Dwight Howard, Camelo Anthony and Trevor Ariza are also players who can tell Monk a lot 안전놀이터
“I’m still living my life learning,” Monk said. I’m 23 years old now. Players in the Lakers have been playing basketball for a long time. So you can not only ask them a lot of questions but also learn a lot. You can learn not only about basketball but also about life off the court. This is why we decided to join the Lakers.
Monk also expressed expectations of joining the big three LeBron-Davis-Westbrook.
Monk said, “You can try much easier shots, open shots, and many drive attacks. LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook will make room for all of us.”
