MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP/CBS) — Just a few weeks after being traded by the Celtics, Fab Melo mow finds himself in basketball limbo.

The Memphis Grizzlies sent Donte Green to the Boston Celtics for the Brazilian center two weeks ago, but on Friday waived Melo before he had a chance to play a game in Memphis.

The 7-foot, 255-pound Melo was the 22nd pick overall in 2012 after playing two seasons at Syracuse. Melo played in only six games for Boston, averaging 1.2 points and 6 minutes per game.
