Celtics Move Fab Melo To Grizzlies For Donte Green
A trade went down between the Celtics and Grizzlies, as the two teams swapped big mean deep on their benches. Memphis has sent Donte Green to Boston in return for Fab Melo in a straight up trade.
Melo is a project, and the Grizzlies most likely added him just as insurance on insurance, and hope that being around Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol will help him improve. The Celtics grabbed Green and with their squad in “rebuilding” (read as: tanking) mode, he may just see some serious minutes.
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have acquired forward Donte Greene from Memphis in exchange for center Fab Melo and cash considerations.
Greene, a 6’11” forward, has appeared in 253 games in his five year career averaging 6.1 points and 2.4 rebounds in 16.8 minutes per game. [...]
Melo, a 7’0” center, appeared in six games for the Celtics this past season averaging 1.2 points and 0.5 rebounds in 6.0 minutes per game.
