According to a report from Superbasket, free-agent big man Greg Monroe is among the names that Virtus Bologna is considering after the injury of Ekpe Udoh, who'll most likely be sidelined for the season. Monroe spent last season with Khimki in Russia, averaging 16 points and 6.8 rebounds per game in VTB League.

Another name that Virtus is currently considering for the big man position is Tarik Black, who also spent the last part of last season in Russia with Zenit St.Petersburg. Both players have already Euroleague experience and might be easier to insert into the team compared to players coming from the NBA/G League environment.

After Ekpe Udoh's injury, Virtus Bologna head coach Sergio Scariolo confirmed that the team needed to go back on the market to find another player, sooner rather than later.
