Might be an interesting pickup. Melo is young and has the raw tools to be something special, if he puts his mind to it. He might have a maturity problem but if the right people mentor and light a fire under him, he might be that diamond in the rough 'big man' we've been looking for. He might be the right project to invest in at minimum rates. If he hits free agency, then the price would probably go up and up. Something I'm sure the Spurs FO might be thinking about. A lot of 'might be's in this guy.
