Doc Rivers said when Fab Melo went to the D-League he would dominate.
6.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game doesn’t qualify as dominating. 2.2 blocks per game is pretty nice, but also not dominating. Moreover, seeing 23.4 minutes per game in the D-League as a first round pick is even more underwhelming.
Nonetheless, the C’s have brought Fab Melo back to the big leagues.
The real question is whether Melo will see any minutes or if he is just being brought back to be another body in practice. With the Celtics’ deficiencies in the front court, it would seem Melo has a place on the court. But that may be hopelessly optimistic for a guy who had a high of 14 points in the D-League playing for the Maine Red Claws.
Anyway, take note, Melo is back in the NBA.
