The Memphis Grizzlies will re-sign De’Anthony Melton to a four-year, $35 million deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Melton, a second-round pick in 2018, has established himself as a versatile guard with the rebuilding team.
Melton averaged 7.6 points per game in his first campaign with the Grizzlies but was similarly productive during his rookie campaign with the Phoenix Suns.
The 22-year-old former No. 46 pick, Charania adds, will now net more money in 2020-21 than anybody in the 2018 class, regardless of draft position.
Melton joined the Grizzlies in the Josh Jackson trade and splits time between the point and shooting guard.
