    Is he that bad, I remember a few people wanted him during the draft.
    I'm guessing that he was the result of a Salary Dump to help clear salary and the Grizz never had the intention of keeping him.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Memphis cut Fab Melo, didn't even let him get to camp lol
    The timing of this makes me wonder if Memphis used the stretch provision on him. That'd cut about $900,000 off their cap this season, and add $450,000 each of the next two seasons. Tomorrow's the last day you can do that for salaries this season.

    Btw, Toronto released Quentin Richardson today too. Both Memphis and Toronto are close to the luxury tax, and may have given themselves about $900,000 in flexibility. That may be the reason why they released both today.

    the whole thing really doesn't make much sense for Memphis, they traded Donte Greene's unguaranteed contract for him. For Boston it made obvious sense, immediately waive Greene and you save money. If Memphis wanted to save cash why did they ever do the trade and just cut Greene themselves?

    I guess Memphis did get some cash from Boston for their trouble too, maybe it was enough to cover Melo's contract and still have a bit leftover. But it still hurt their cap assuming no one claims him.

    I think, even if he goes unclaimed, whatever amount a team would sign him for would offset whatever cap hit the Grizzlies would take. And even a league-minimum contract is going to cover half of his 12-13 salary.

    Makes me think they thought they might have something with Fab and then upon closer inspection realized they didn't.

    The "set off" would only be one-half the difference between the new deal and the minimum salary for a player with one year of NBA experience. Since Melo is a player with one year of NBA experience - and it's unlikely any team will offer him more than a minimum deal - the chances for any set off are very slim.

    However, the set off also applies to any contract signed with any professional team - not limited to the NBA. So, if he could get some Russian oligarch to pay him significantly more than the $788k min for one year NBA players, then Memphis could see some savings.

    But, most likely, they're going to eat the full $1.3mm.

    You could recap just about every relevant NBA story line from 1993 through 2007 by using those 15 guys, then bring in Tracy McGrady to really hammer it home. The league hasn't been in this good of a place since the early '90s — the right players on the right teams, the right financial structure in place, more than enough quality players to go around — but it only happened because of the mistakes the league made, and eventually fixed, as T-Mac's prime came and went. Had he come along 10 years earlier, or 10 years later, we'd be remembering him differently. Instead, our last memory will be Tracy McGrady halfheartedly warming up for those 2013 Finals games. One of the finest players of his generation had finally made it past the first round. But not really.
    Great article, in some ways the Lockout really helped the NBA teams become smarter in realizing how to create a better team.

    Argentina struggled a bit early. they started pushing the pace which they normally never do but it worked only down 2. very exciting first half not a typical game for Argentina. The bigs have really struggled Scola needs to pick it up for Argentina to pull this out.

    Wow Paraguay has a 15 year old kid on the team.That makes me feel super old.
    He played 21 minutes as well. Good for him. He is collecting a lot of experience.

    EDIT: Scola is putting on a basketball clinic David West has a new AND 1 parnter this season. He has had two fantastic and 1s such soft hands and great footwork.
    9 points, 5 rebounds and 1 steal in 10 minutes. Not bad.

    He is having a bad game tonight, though. 6 points on 4/14 shooting, 7 boards, 1 assist and 2 turnovers is not a good line for him.

    Luis Scola was interviewed by ESPNDeportes.com. Here's a bit and then the link for the whole article.

    And after a season in Arizona, the ex-Houston Rocket never imagined that the final stretch of his career would be on an Indiana roster which he considers to be a "serious title contender."

    "I sure did have a lot of urge to be on a winning team. I had a lot of desire," Scola said during an interview with ESPNDeportes.com at the FIBA Americas tournament here. "I see real possibilities. I believe we have a team with real chances to fight for a championship."
    "I would have liked it a lot to have retired in Houston. I would have liked Phoenix to have been my last team and now I am in Indianapolis, and I would like to retire in Indiana. Therefore it won't happen," Scola said in between laughs.
