Nicolo Melli impressed in his NBA debut on Tuesday, hitting 5-of-7 field goals (4-of-5 threes) for 14 points and adding five rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes off the bench.
Melli looked comfortable out there and confident with his shot, which is a strength. While Zion Williamson is out, Melli could be looking at a significant role off the bench. He even played some crunch-time minutes in this back-and-forth opener. He's at least worth a watch list add, if not a speculative pickup for those that need some threes from a forward.
