BOSTON (CBS) – You can now add Fab Melo to the list of Celtics being mentioned in trade rumors.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics have made Melo available as they search for some more guard depth leading up to Thursday’s 3 p.m. NBA trade deadline.

The 7-0 center was drafted 22nd overall out of Syracuse last June as a project pick for Boston. He spent most of his time this season with the Maine Red Claws in the NBADL, and has played just eight minutes for the Celtics.
