Dave Early @DavidEarly
De’Anthony Melton shot 39.4 percent from 3 on looks when given 6 feet or more of room (wide open) since the start of the 2020-2021 season. That’s 282 shots, including reg. season and playoffs.
#Sixers probably betting they can get Melton more of these looks than MEM too. – 2:32 PM

Daryl Morey couldn’t specifically talk about De’Anthony Melton, so he termed his post-draft availability “like a Giambi press conference.” Hilarity ensued. – 8:15 AM

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

Damichael Cole: Zach Kleiman: “De’Anthony Melton was a big part of this team. Never easy to move on from someone who was a significant part of the team.” -via Twitter @DamichaelC / June 24, 2022
“First and foremost, I want to thank Danny Green for everything he gave the Sixers organization over the last two seasons. He was a veteran leader, consummate professional on and off the court, and made us all better. I wish him continued success in his recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the court. Heading into the draft, we had a goal of strengthening our rotation and believe we accomplished that by acquiring De’Anthony Melton. He is a young, tough and talented two-way player who can impact the game on multiple levels. We think he will thrive here and we’re excited to add him to our roster,” Morey said following the trade. -via / June 24, 2022
