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.
