Nicolo Melli won't play for Team ItalyAugust 13, 2019 | 02:32 PM
Nicolo Melli will not play for Team Italy at the 2019 FIBA World Cup due to an "injury."
His "injury" is likely that he just got a contract with an NBA club and doesn't want to risk getting an injury on the international stage. Melli is a sniper from beyond the arc, and the 28-year-old should be in the rotation for the Pelicans this season. However, it's tough to see him getting enough minutes to make an impact in standard formats.
