I mostly remember Melton being a part of the Josh Jackson trade with Memphis. The Grizzlies wanted him to be included.

James Jones was in rebuild mode at the time so the Suns were not overly picky in getting deals done. I liked Melton more than Carter but a lot of fans were high on Jevon.

Speaking of Carter, he did get some burn in this years playoffs while being on the Bucks. Last year with the sun, we know how that went.

Yeah I saw some talk from Bucks fans thinking Jevon could have helped them more, similar to the Holiday talk by Suns fans. They felt they could have gotten past Milwaukee if Bud had used Carter more.

Fans like players that play all out. It gives a false impression that they're difference makers. Kelly Oubre is one of those guys, IMO. He was adored here because he was always doing something, it didn't matter if it was gambling on D or taking bad shots that disrupted the offense. The activity gives off a sense of effort that is appreciated. I think we saw that last year with Torrey Craig also, he didn't have the same spark this year though.

Those guys play all out for various reasons but rarely does it effect the outcome of the game. The effort is needed because they generally lack the talent that others in the league have. Look at Ayton, he's the opposite of that but his numbers dwarf all of those mentioned combined.

I stumbled across this video. Apparently there are a few videos from a year ago of Monty praising this kid. He doesn't appear to be projected to be drafted. This is the first I heard of him.

I like the way this guy moves. Also he looks solid on defense in the video.

They are saying in another video he could be an undrafted signing.

He was rumored to be coming to the US for college a couple of years ago but it never happened. He went undrafted and will likely go back to the NBL in New Zealand.

He's got a passionate Filipino fan base online that were really pumping him up, so I was surprised when was not projected to be drafted. Hopefully he can make his way to the NBA at some point.

I forget where but he was playing in the US for a bit a couple of years ago I think it was on some AAU team and colleges were looking at him but then he went back home and then NZ.

He's filled out from that video was really skinny when younger.

Would have loved to see him join the NBA G League team Ignite. I wonder why he turned down the invite. He definitely be drafted if he had.

It looks like he turned do Summer League invites.
