Melo Trimble, the former Maryland guard who was undrafted in June, has agreed to a deal with the Timberwolves.
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.
He played sparingly for the 76ers' summer league team, sitting out four of the team's games.
"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 Washington 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."
Three state wrestlers help U.S. win title
Mark Hall and Gable Steveson of Apple Valley won gold medals at wrestling's junior world championships in Tampere, Finland, while Mitch McKee of St. Michael finished with a silver medal.
Hall, who won an NCAA title last spring as a Penn State freshman, won his second consecutive world championship by pinning Isa Shapiev of Uzbekistan in 43 seconds in the 163-pound freestyle class. Steveson, a three-time state high school champion who will be a senior at Apple Valley this fall, beat Iran's Naeiim Hassanzadeh 5-1 at 264 pounds. McKee, who wrestles for the Gophers, was second in the 132-pound class.
Steveson's victory pushed the U.S. past Russia 68-67 for its first team title in junior men's freestyle since 1984.
