De'Anthony Melton scored six points on 2-of-4 shooting with three rebounds, an assist and three steals on Tuesday.
Melton logged 19 minutes off the bench and was able to handle business on the defensive end which is something we've come to expect. He was known for his defensive prowess since college and it showed as he averaged 1.3 steals a game, but his offensive flaws were on full display this year. He missed some time due to an ankle injury and also hopped back and forth between the G-league as well. As a starter, Melton only averaged 5.0 points and 0.6 3s on .359 shooting. He's a streaky shooter who plays passive almost to the point of being invisble on offense at times but the steals come in at an elite level when he starts. There are a couple paths for him to become fantasy relevant, but it relies on his offensive game catching up to his defense.
