His trade value isn't increasing with his current performances in Maine either...

Kris Joseph needs reps, reps and reps where Maine is the best place for him... Melo needs coaching, coaching and more coaching where Boston will help him, IMO... The D-League is fast and sloppy which IMO hurts Melo... Giving him reps against KG, Collins and Wilcox in practice is a lot better for him than Ayer and Vandermeer in Maine... I bet he would progress a lot faster in Boston than in Maine, even if he doesn't log in any minutes...

DA and Doc really should have brought a real big man coach once they signed Melo... Relying on KG as the "big man coach" was a bad idea...
