Grizzlies, Celtics talking Greene-Fab Melo swap
The Grizzlies and Celtics have completed a trade that involves Donte Greene and Fab Melo.
Update 1:25 p.m. That was quick. The teams announced the deal, with Melo and cash considerations to Memphis in exchange for Greene. Don't be surprised if Greene is waived as the Celtics attempt to get under the luxury tax.
The Memphis Commercial-Appeal reports that the Grizzlies are in talks with the Boston Celtics to trade Donte Greene and his non-guaranteed contract to Boston for second-year reserve-reserve center Fab Melo.
