    Although coming in as a third option in a backcourt that featured RJ Jazul and RR Garcia, Melecio managed to shine during his rookie season and averaged 4.8 points and 1.2 assists in a total of 23 games.

    A second round pick at No. 19 overall in last year’s draft, Melecio expressed appreciation for the trust given him by Phoenix management.
