Report: Mavericks may bring in Fab Melo to training camp

Fab Melo isn’t much of an NBA player right now — that’s part of the reason Boston traded him to Memphis this summer (the other was money), and it’s a key reason Memphis waived him even though they still had to pay him $1.3 million.

However, if you’re a GM that has room for a prospect big on your roster — one you can really send to your D-League affiliate for stretches as he needs more seasoning (he averaged 9.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.1 blocks in the D-League last year and looked raw) — Melo could be a good fit.

The market is dry for Melo, but he may spend the fall in Dallas.

Melo is going to get a training camp invite from the Mavericks, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.

Thing is, Dallas has 15 guaranteed contracts on their roster already, they can’t add anyone — this would be a training camp and training camp only invite for Melo.

Maybe if he played well he could catch the eye of another team, but you would imagine his preference is to head to camp somewhere with a shot of making the roster.

    Is it me or does any Syracuse players ever turn out good this recent decade? Besides Carmelo?

    Not much of an NBA player? He isn’t even on a roster, you can’t call him ANY level of an NBA player.

    He’s one of the better dudes in the league, I wish he makes the Mavs roster.
