2019 Fantasy Outlook
A 28-year-old out of Italy, Melli signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the Pelicans over the summer. He's been playing professionally overseas since 2010-11, and he most recently appeared in 78 games (68 starts) for Fenerbahce Ulker. In EuroLeague contests, he averaged 7.3 points on 5.9 shots, 4.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 25.9 minutes. He projects as a three-point threat at the NBA level, as he's cracked at least 40 percent from distance in each of the past four seasons. It's possible he earns reserve power forward minutes behind Zion Williamson, but he'll be competing against the likes of Darius Miller, Brandon Ingram, Derrick Favors and Kenrich Williams. Either way, it seems unlikely Melli will end up with standard league relevance, and he's even a risky deep league selection Read Past Outlooks

January 18, 2020
Melli will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Clippers, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Melli will return to his usual bench role with J.J. Redick making his return from a three-game absence. Look for Melli to see his usual allotment of around 15 minutes in his return to backup duties.
