Former Syracuse and Boston Celtics player, Fab Melo, was found dead at the age of 26 in his home in Brazil.
The 26 year old was drafted to the Celtics 22nd over all in the 2012 NBA Draft. Though, he would spend most of his career playing in the D-League for the Maine Red Claws & the Texas Legends.
Former coaches & teammates of Melo would take to Twitter to give their condolences:
