Not so fast. You missed: 

Former NBA executive:
@BobbyMarks42: Boston is in the lead for best contract so far. As @WojYahooNBA reported, 24m/2 for Amir Johnson is a huge bargain.

CBS NBA writer: 
@talkhoops: I like the Amir Johnson move to Boston. Best big in the rotation already. He and Zeller are a nice stopgap.

ESPN: "Sometimes, he doesn't even start. Yet there is a large sect of league followers that consider Johnson among the most valuable, efficient and irreplaceable players in the NBA"

On Monroe, "overrated" is also a term you see a lot: 

Espn reporter:

@Truth_About_It: @MattTesorero I think Greg Monroe, especially considering his defense, is overrated & that he would be a bad investment 4 #Wizards.

@crossoverNBA: Many think Greg Monroe is an overrated player, regardless of the new situation he'll inherit.
Not @thatjoemags.

@DraftExpress: New on DX: Greg Monroe Free Agent Scouting Video - Is Monroe the missing piece for some team or an overrated tweener?

@19Yanks23: Greg Monroe to Milwaukee? Ok. If anyone can hide him on defense I think it would be them
