It's common to send money in a trade to offset salary. Rarely do you see a team pay for the full contract. But in the case of Fab Melo the Celtics are not only paying Fab's full salary, but giving Memphis extra money for the trouble. So if you thought the Celtics were trading Fab Melo for a bag of Doritos you were wrong. He was traded for nothing and we're payimg his salary too AND we're kicking in $349K in Doritos...
