Fab Melo waived by Grizz
The Memphis Grizzlies waived center Fab Melo on Friday, just two weeks after acquiring him and cash considerations from the Boston Celtics in exchange for the nonguaranteed contract of Donte Green.
Some will wonder why the Grizzlies, straddling the luxury tax line themselves, would do a trade in which they gave away a nonguaranteed contract, only to waive the guaranteed contract they got in return. For Memphis there is two incentives: a small trade exception generated and those cash considerations.
