Melo Trimble will get his first shot a making an NBA team with the Timberwolves.
The former Maryland combo guard, undrafted in June, has agreed to a deal with the Wolves. The news was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Trimble had a strong freshman season with the Terrapins, but stayed in school through his junior year and had his draft stock fall. He was a three-year starter at Maryland, averaging 15.9 points and 3.9 assists in 104 games.
He played sparingly for the 76ers summer league team, sitting out four of the team's games. The Washington Post chronicled his post-college plight here.
“In the position I’m in, not being drafted and trying to make a team and all that, I’m not going to be the first or second option," Trimble told the Post. "I might not be an option at all. But I’m going to do my role, and these next couple years for me is just getting where I fit in.”
Trimble is most likely to play in the G League this season.
