Philadelphia 76ers trade No. 23 pick Danny Green to Memphis Grizzlies for De'Anthony Melton, sources say

The Philadelphia 76ers are trading Thursday Night’s No. 23 NBA draft pick and small forward Danny Green to the Memphis Grizzlies for shooting guard De’Anthony Melton, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Memphis will get the right to keep David Roddy, sources have said. Philadelphia selected him 23rd overall from Colorado State.

Melton averaged 10.8 career points in 73 games for the Grizzlies last season as they advanced to the Western Conference Semifinals. He is expected to earn $8.25 million next season and $8 million in 2023-24.

For his career, he averaged 8.4 points per game on 40.9 percent shooting and 36.1 percent 3-point range, as well as 3.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists.

Melton was a second-round pick of the Phoenix Suns in 2018, but after just one season in Arizona, the Suns sent him to the Grizzlies on a multiplayer deal.

Roddy was named Associated Press All-America Honorable Mention and Mountain West Player of the Year after averaging 19.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1. 0 blocks in 33 minutes per game last season.

He helped lead Colorado State to its first NCAA Tournament appearance in nine years as the No. 6 seed, the highest in school history.

Green tore the ACL and LCL in his left knee during the playoffs.

The Sixers were only to have the 23rd pick in the draft.
