The very same Fab Melo that lit up the D-League and gloriously watched from the Celtics bench, is being dangled by Danny Ainge as possible trade bait. In pursuit of guard help, the Celtics have made rookie center Fab Melo available in trade offers, league sources tell Y! Sports. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 20, 2013 A couple months ago, Fab Melo was all the rage after doing some great things with the Maine Red Claws. See the below. Video: Fab Melo scores 14 points (6 dunks) in Red Claws' victory over the Mad Ants Video: Full highlights of Fab Melo's 14 block triple double night Ok now this is getting a bit ridiculous - Fab Melo puts up 32/9/9 for Red Claws Video: Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game He got some garbage time play and didn't exactly do much of the same. He's still what everyone thought he was, a project. The fact that he's being dangled probably alludes to maybe some desperation from Ainge to try and get a deal done.
