Fab Melo Waived by the Memphis Grizzlies

Two weeks after acquiring Fab Melo from the Boston Celtics via trade, the Memphis Grizzlies sent the big fella packing. Per the AP: “The Grizzlies announced the move Friday. The 7-foot, 255-pound Melo was the 22nd pick overall in 2012 after playing two seasons at Syracuse. Melo played in only six games for Boston, averaging 1.2 points and 6 minutes per game. He played in 33 games for the Maine Red Claws in the NBA D-League.”

    i think his career highlight was breaking that chair at the rookie photo shoot

    I think it was when fab and Jordan Crawford trash talked Carmelo and doc pointed him back to the locker room like his dad.

    If you’re 7 feet tall and can’t get a job in the NBA then something’s really wrong

    “There is one scientific study that showed that there are 3 people that
    are 7ft tall or taller for roughly every 1 million people. That would
    make the total roughly 20,000 people that are over 7ft tall.”

    drafted in 12 and now out of league. Might as well go to Europe or China to play ball this year.

    this is my favourite highligh of melo by far (@0:55):


  • Mike Gilbert

    he’s not out of the league man give the guy a break. He clearly got cut for salary concerns; it’s the Grizzlies. Other teams will give him a shot

  • Ugh

    If you’re endowed with intelligence to type but still say stuff like that then something’s really wrong.

    If there is one thing that can be said for certain with young talent, it’s that big men often take longer to reach their ceilings. Can teams really have given up on him so quickly?

    He’s a genuine 7 footer who has defensive skills and a legit college pedigree. Really, no teams will take a shot on that?
