The Memphis Grizzlies announced on Friday they've waived center Fab Melo, acquired earlier this month in a trade with the Celtics for Donte Green. If the young 7-footer is claimed off waivers, it spares the Grizzlies his $1.3 million this season.
Will a team take a risk on the inconsistent project? He's not even up to Hasheem Thabeet levels on the upside scale and even the tanking rebuilding reloading Celtics didn't want him.
The odds are not great for a fabulous ending outside of the D-League.
