Best of luck Fab.

Looks like Fab Melo will have at least one more chance to catch on with an NBA team this season.  He's headed to Dallas for training camp.

Sources: Melo invited to Mavs camp - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

The Dallas Mavericks' ongoing search for a bargain big man has led them to invite the recently released Fab Melo to training camp, according to sources close to the situation. Sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday that the Mavericks have struck a training camp deal with Melo, who was traded from Boston to Memphis after his rookie season with the Celtics and then waived by the Grizzlies in August two weeks after they acquired him.

I give Fab a hard time (usually on twitter), but I do wish him all the luck in the world.  He's tall and he can play defense, so there's bound to be someone willing to take a chance on him.  Maybe it will work out in Dallas.
