Report: Fab Melo headed to training camp with Mavericks

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Former Syracuse Orange and Celtics first-round draft pick Fab Melo is reportedly headed to training camp with the Mavericks.

The Dallas Mavericks' ongoing search for a bargain big man has led them to invite the recently released Fab Melo to training camp, according to sources close to the situation.

Sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the Mavericks have struck a training camp deal with Melo, who was traded from Boston to Memphis after his rookie season with the Celtics and then waived by the Grizzlies in August, two weeks after they acquired him.

Melo still has some upside, and the Mavericks are no doubt desperate enough to need help even from him down low. He's more than worth a training camp invite and should have a good shot at making the roster. Just based on raw size, Melo should be able to stay in the league somehow.

Melo was traded to Memphis last month for Donte Green in a cost-cutting move, then waived by the Grizzlies.
