When the Celtics made the decision to draft not only Jared Sullinger but also Fab Melo a lot of people pegged it as a potential power move if both guys pan out. Sullinger is still finding his niche but looks like he will be a solid player down the line. Now the C’s are about to see what they have in former Syracuse big man Fab Melo:
The Boston Celtics have recalled center Fab Melo from their NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.
Melo, a 7’0” center, averaged 6.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 23.4 minutes over five games for the Red Claws. Melo recorded a high of 14 points against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants on November 25 and recorded a high of 11 rebounds against the Los Angeles D-Fenders on November 30.

KG cannot play forever so it’s better sooner rather to later to see what you got in Melo.
