Fab Melo Will Not Return To Syracuse
By Michael McAllister
According to Draft Express, Fab Melo has signed with an agent and will not return to Syracuse next season. They tweeted, "Fab Melo has signed with Arn Tellem, according to multiple sources, which means he obviously isn't returning to Syracuse, as expected." Mike Waters of Syracuse.com
spoke with sources who said he hasn't signed with an agent officially yet, but he has made the decision to leave Syracuse for the NBA.
The news comes as a surprised to no one given the eligibility issues he's had this season. There are also rumors that his family could use some financial assistance. An NBA contract would certainly allow Melo to do that.
Fab is projected as a first round draft pick. You can't teach his size, and his potential is through the roof.
His departure leaves a hole in the middle for the Orange. That hole will likely be filled by Christmas, Keita, Coleman, or Nerlens Noel should he choose Syracuse.
