I think it's a nice move to add a big man off the bench for Memphis

Not really. Greene was not even activated most the season and with the cash considerations it's basically an even salary swap. All the front court players will play before him. Gasol, Randolph, Koufas, Davis, and Luer, will all get the mins. Fab will have a chance to play Dleague and practice against legit c's. at the very least he can block shots which is a grizz weakness

Greene's deal isn't guaranteed right? And Melo's is. That's the trade - a project big man salary dump. Celts already have a stuffed roster (head count wise, not quality wise), and Melo had no place w/ the Celts this year - even though they probably have the worst C rotation in the NBA.

Small risk for Griz, nice salary reduction by DA.

No one got "raped". It's just a meaningless trade done by the C's to shed a tiny bit of money. There will be no repercussions at all from this.

This gets Boston under the luxury tax (assuming they let Greene go, which they will)

Changed the title. I get it but even the original post didn't mention Fab. Had to alter it.

I like it for Memphis. They get a project big. They don't lose much.

That always threw me off when Fab first started getting attention. I would see stuff like "Melo returns to Syracuse" and just think he went back for a seminar or something. Had no idea Syracuse actually had a player named Fab Melo.

Yeah but Greene is better than Fab Melo and has way more potential than him too. Greene wasnt active that much because he was healing an injury from last offseason, then joined the Grizz really late. He also came out of college too early and was in a bad Sacramento situation to start his career off. Greene is way better than Fab. Bad trade for Memphis, but both of these guys are irrelevant so it doesnt even really matter.

I lmao'd a little bit when I heard this with how hyped some Celtics fans (including Bill Simmons I think) were about getting Melo and talking about him starting or being a primary backup. Smart, win-win, minor trade. Boston can get below the tax and Memphis gets a younger player to see if he can pan out.

I had high hopes for Greene coming out of college (they both went to Syracuse, right?), but he's shown nothing since Daryl Morey drafted him :P In fact, he's part of the case against never drafting a Syracuse player (stay away from 'Zags as well).

I don't agree that Greene has more potential. He's been in the league 5 yrs and has done nothing
