De'Anthony Melton News
The 76ers traded the No. 23 pick of the 2022 NBA Draft to Memphis in exchange for guard De'Anthony Melton. The 24-year-old is coming off the best season of his career, finishing 2021-22 by averaging 10.8 points, 2.7 assists, and 1.4 steals. He also shot 37.4% from behind the arc and will add some much-needed depth to a team with championship aspirations. While Melton may not be a day-to-day fantasy option moving ahead, he's someone to watch, especially if he carves out a consistent role with the Sixers.
Memphis Grizzlies point/shooting guard De'Anthony Melton dropped a team-high 24 points off the bench during Saturday's win over Milwaukee. Without Ja Morant (knee) available, the Grizzlies have been scoring by committee, with Melton taking the onus Saturday while tying his career high with six made threes. It was a night of all-around production for the fourth-year guard, who compiled three rebounds, three steals, and two assists across his 22 minutes. Melton has averaged 20.5 points and 5.3 made threes over his last four games, pushing him into short-term season-long consideration while Morant is sidelined. He faces a tougher task Monday against Golden State, but Melton's ceiling remains high.
Memphis Grizzlies guard De'Anthony Melton is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Detroit Pistons. Melton has cleared the league's health and safety protocols. That means, Melton could return Thursday, but the organization might hold him out due to conditioning concerns. Regardless, it sounds like Melton will return soon and he should have a significant role once he does get back on the court. Dillon Brooks and Desmond Bane are likely to lose value once Melton does return.
Memphis Grizzlies guard De'Anthony Melton and forward Dillon Brooks have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Sacramento Kings. Both players have entered the league's health and safety protocols. This is a shame since Brooks has been a top-100 player this season. The absence of these two will mean a spike in usage for Desmond Bane. He'll certainly be worth a look for DFS contests on Sunday. He'll get plenty of run while the Grizzlies are shorthanded. Also, Tyus Jones and John Konchar, and Kyle Anderson should see a boost. Jones has quietly been solid this season and could have some sneaky streaming value and DFS appeal for Sunday.
