• De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    The Grizzlies are set to acquire De'Anthony Melton from the Suns along with Josh Jackson and two second-rounders in exchange for Kyle Korver and Jevon Carter.

    It was surprising when Melton wasn't on the Suns' Summer League roster earlier today, but perhaps this is why. It's a worthwhile gamble for Memphis, who adds two young players with upside for a veteran they weren't going to play and a sophomore with lower upside than Melton. Melton started 31 games (50 apperances) for the Suns last season and flashed his defensive prowess with 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks in 19.7 mpg, but he has a long way to go on the offensive end. He remains an intriguing dynasty asset and could make a bigger splash if Memphis doesn't retain Delon Wright.
