Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves have added undrafted rookie Melo Trimble this past week. Trimble played collegiately at Maryland from 2014-2017. The 22-year-old point guard went undrafted in the 2017 NBA draft.
In three years at Maryland, Trimble averaged 15.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game, while also shooting 34.3% from beyond the arc.
Melo was a 2014 McDonald's All-American; a member of the 2015 Big Ten All-Freshman team, All-Big Ten (Coaches) second team; All-Big Ten (Media) first team, and All American (SN) second team; 2016 AP Honorable Mention All-American team; and 2017 All-Big Ten first team.
Trimble played in the 2017 NBA Summer League for the Philadelphia 76ers. In three games with Philadelphia he averaged 10.3 points.
According to ESPN, Melo has joined the Wolves on a partially guaranteed deal. The likelihood of him making the final roster are slim. He does have potential to join the Wolves on their second two-way contract (the other being filled by Anthony Brown).
Trimble would certainly fit the mold of point guards that Thibodeau has employed in the past (D.J. Augustin, Aaron Brooks, etc.).
For now, Melo will attend training camp with the Wolves, so the undrafted rookie has his chance to make his NBA dreams come true.
