2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 46th overall pick in the 2018 Draft, Melton appeared in 50 games for the Suns, including 31 starts. In 19.7 minutes per game, he averaged 5.0 points on 5.1 shots, 3.2 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.4 steals, largely demonstrating his upside as a defender. In early July, he was traded to the Grizzlies along with Josh Jackson and draft picks for Jevon Carter and Kyle Korver. It's possible Melton will be able to find regular minutes on the tanking Grizzlies, though Ja Morant and Tyus Jones seems to have the point guard position locked up. As a result, fantasy owners probably shouldn't take the risk on Melton having a fantasy-relevant season, even in deeper formats. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $2.37 million contract with the Suns in September of 2018. Traded to the Grizzlies in July of 2019.
Goes through shooting drills

October 2, 2019
Melton (back) went through shooting drills after practice Wednesday, the Daily Memphian reports.
ANALYSIS
Melton remains on the shelf as he works back from a stress reaction in his back, but he was able to get some shots up after practice with an assistant coach. There's a slight chance the guard could be back in time for opening night, but he'll likely be unavailable until sometime in early-to-mid-November.
