Melo was selected in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft (22nd overall) by the Celtics, though came out of Syracuse University too early as Melo looked relatively overmatched during his first season in Boston.
There’s little risk for the Mavericks considering it’s unlikely a guaranteed contract and Melo wouldn’t be anything more than a project big man who could eventually pay dividends down the road.
