MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — The Memphis Grizzlies have waived Fab Melo two weeks after sending forward Donte Greene to the Boston Celtics to acquire the Brazilian center.
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.
