The Sixers added veteran guard De’Anthony Melton in an overnight trade with the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Danny Green and the No. 23 pick, which ended up being David Roddy from Colorado State.
Melton is a nice recovery for Daryl Morey, having scored 10.8 points and 1.9 threes (37%) in 22.7 minutes per game off the bench.
His numbers improved when Ja Morant was out, averaging 13.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, three assists and 2.6 triples in 23.8 minutes per game in 25 games with Morant out of the lineup. .
He should be a solid reserve guard behind James Harden and Tyrese Maxey.
As for Green, his Sixers career is coming to an end, after suffering a torn ACL and LCL in his left knee in the playoffs against the Miami Heat. He has an expiring $10 million contract that makes him an attractive trade option, which Memphis jumped on.
Green was a solid 3-point corner shooter during his time in Philadelphia.
