2012 NBA Draft – Fab Melo
Fab Melo – Syracuse, Center (So.)
2011-2012 Statistics: 7.8 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.9 bpg
Strengths: A vastly improved big man whose impact goes beyond what the statistics indicate. Really long and mobile. Has plenty of upside and room to get better.
Weaknesses: Conditioning has come a long ways but he still isn’t in peak form. Needs to improve activity rate on the glass and continue developing low post game.
Projection: Late first round to early second round
NBA Comparison: Kendrick Perkins/Joakim Noah
