The Memphis Grizzlies acquired center Fab Melo from the Boston Celtics for forward Donte Greene on Thursday.

Melo, a 7-footer, averaged 1.2 points in six games last season. In 33 NBA D-League games, he averaged 9.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and a league-high 3.1 blocks in 26.2 minutes per game for the Maine Red Claws.

He was drafted No. 22 overall by the Celtics in 2012 out of Syracuse.

Greene signed with Memphis in April. He missed most of last season while recovering from a fractured ankle. He spent his first four seasons with the Sacramento Kings, averaging 6.1 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 16.8 minutes over 253 career games.
