  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Dealt to Philly on draft night

    Melton was traded to the 76ers from the Grizzlies on Thursday in exchange for the No. 23 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft and Danny Green (knee), Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    While the Sixers' primary motivation appears to be getting off of Green's contract, they'll bring back a productive guard in Melton, who's set to make roughly $8 million in each of the next two seasons. The USC product appeared in a career-high 73 games for the Grizzlies in 2021-22, averaging 10.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks while shooting 37.4 percent from deep. Assuming the Sixers' roster remains relatively intact, Melton will primarily compete for minutes at both guard spots with Tyrese Maxey, Shake Milton, Furkan Korkmaz and Matisse Thybulle.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Plays 25 minutes off bench

    Melton notched 14 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one block and three steals across 25 minutes during Sunday's 117-116 loss to Golden State.

    After picking up a pair of DNP-CDs to conclude the Grizzlies' Round 1 series against Minnesota, Melton was thrust back into the rotation for a much larger role Sunday. His 25 minutes established a new playoff career high, as coach Taylor Jenkins rolled with Melton for long stretches instead of Tyus Jones, who saw only 12 minutes of action. The absence of Ziaire Williams (knee) may have also been a factor, though Williams was unavailable for Game 6 against Minnesota when Melton did not see the floor. How the minutes break down between Melton and Jones, in particular, will be worth monitoring as the series progresses.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Modest production in start

    Melton provided 14 points (4-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, five assists and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 139-110 loss to Boston.

    Melton drew the start in the regular-season finale with Tyus Jones (hand) and Ja Morant (knee) sidelined. Melton was inefficient from the field but still scored in double figures for an 11th consecutive game and dished out at least five assists for the first time during that stretch. The fourth-year guard finished the regular season with averages of 10.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.4 steals in 22.7 minutes across 73 appearances -- all career highs.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Starting in finale

    Melton is starting Sunday's game against the Celtics, Keith Smith of reports.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Double-double off bench

    Melton recorded 11 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and one block over 28 minutes during Tuesday's 121-115 overtime loss to the Jazz.

    After getting a spot start against Phoenix on Friday, Melton moved back to his regular bench role behind Tyus Jones while Ja Morant (knee) remains sidelined. Melton continues to be one of the better late-season fantasy adds, as he's up to 17.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.9 three-pointers per game over his last 10 appearances.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Joins starting lineup

    Melton is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Suns, Rob Fischer of Bally Sports Southeast reports.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Pours in 21 points Monday

    Melton accumulated 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes during Monday's 123-95 win over the Warriors.

    Melton was solid off the bench again for Memphis, tallying the second-highest point total on the team behind Desmond Bane. The fourth-year guard added six rebounds, marking the third time in his past five contests he has reached that total. Melton has scored at least 20 points in three of his last four appearances following a 24-game stretch during which he didn't hit the 20-point mark a single time.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Explodes for season-high 23 points

    Melton had 23 points (8-13 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 132-120 victory over Brooklyn.

    Ja Morant (knee) has missed three of the Grizzlies' past four games, and Melton has come off the bench and scored in double figures in each of Morant's absences, including notching a season-high 23 points on Wednesday. Over his last four games, the fourth-year wing is shooting 57.7 percent from three on 6.5 attempts per game. Melton will look to stay hot against the Pacers Thursday.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Plays well in Morant's absence

    Melton supplied 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt), three rebounds, six assists and three steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 135-102 victory over the Pacers.

    Melton saw extended run due to Ja Morant's (back) absence and the blowout win, leading to a strong performance. He matched his season-high six assists and came up just four points shy of matching his season-high 22, so it was one of his better all-around efforts of the campaign, especially when factoring in the three steals.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Continues to deliver defensively

    Melton finished with nine points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four assists, four rebounds, three steals and one block across 24 minutes in Saturday's 124-96 win over the Magic.

    Melton has now recorded at least one steal in 12 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the NBA. Though he doesn't have a path to more playing time while the Grizzlies are at close to full strength in the backcourt -- save for Dillon Brooks (ankle), who could return during the upcoming week -- Melton has put himself on the radar in 12-team leagues based on his recent play. Since the beginning of February, Melton is getting only 21.4 minutes per game over 12 outings, but he's chipped in across the board with averages of 10.8 points, 5.1 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.9 three-pointers, 1.8 steals and 0.4 blocks.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Dishes out season-high six assists

    Melton provided 12 points (3-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, six assists and one steal over 22 minutes during Thursday's 119-114 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Melton scored in double figures for the fifth time over his last eight appearances and dished out a season-high six assists -- a mark he's reached five times. In February, the backup wing has averaged 11.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.6 steals in 21.0 minutes per game.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Produces well off bench

    Melton supplied 13 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 22 minutes Tuesday in the Grizzlies' 121-109 win over the Pelicans.

    The absence of Ja Morant (ankle) may have played a small factor in Melton clearing 20 minutes, but Tyus Jones was the main beneficiary while moving into the starting five. Even if Morant doesn't miss any additional time beyond Tuesday, Melton has managed to put himself on the radar in 12-team leagues through his play of late, despite continuing to handle a relatively limited role. Through six games in February, Melton is averaging 12.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.3 three-pointers and 1.7 steals in 21.5 minutes per contest.

  • Grizzlies' De'Anthony Melton: Three steals in 16 minutes

    Melton totaled nine points (2-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and three steals across 16 minutes during Saturday's 125-118 victory over Charlotte.

    Melton continues to prove that he doesn't need big minutes to provide well-rounded fantasy contributions. Over his last five games, he's posting 11.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.8 threes in just 21.4 minutes. The steals, in particular, are what fantasy managers are after. Melton's numbers should be sustainable for now, but he'll likely lose some minutes once Dillon Brooks (ankle) is back in the mix in early March.
