De’Anthony Melton is one of the best! Memphis is going to miss him. Cheering for him always! – 10:32 PM

De’Anthony Melton is awesome.
Also, he might be Doc’s new Austin Rivers in Philly (not because he’s going to be his son, just on the floor lol) – 10:29 PM

This is the cost of salary dumping by the way. JaMychal Green makes the same amount of money as De’Anthony Melton. – 10:25 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Sixers acquiring De’Anthony Melton in exchange for No. 23 pick (David Roddy) and Danny Green — confirming @Adrian Wojnarowski.
Daryl Morey added Green on his first draft night with the Sixers, trades him away in deal for the 24-year-old Melton two years later. – 10:23 PM
Tas Melas @TasMelas
De’Anthony Melton is 24?! – 10:22 PM
Zach Kram @zachkram
RAPM is a stat that measures a player’s overall on-court impact, adjusting for teammates and opponents.
De’Anthony Melton ranks 21st in the entire NBA over the last 3 seasons.
Of course Daryl Morey would want a player that advanced stats have always loved. – 10:21 PM

More on this storyline

The Memphis Grizzlies could be looking at an expensive price tag to keep unrestricted free agent Tyus Jones this summer. If Memphis goes in another direction, it will have the draft, free agency and trade market to explore for a quality backup point guard. However, one of the best options may already be on the roster. -via Memphis Commercial Appeal / May 25, 2022
