Let’s be clear about this, Melo Trimble has virtually zero shot to have a career in the NBA. He doesn’t have the size or shot to become a 2 guard, and doesn’t have the handles or the ball security to become a point guard. But congratulations to him for being signed as an undrafted free agent to the 76ers, where he can stay close to home, at least for a little while.

Had Melo stayed at Maryland, he still wouldn’t have been drafted next year, so anyone saying he made the wrong decision because of that is wrong. But I do think he made the wrong decision simply because of where his Terps legacy could have been. Had Melo stayed for his senior year, he’d be considered one of the all time great Terps, and probably had his banner in the rafters forever. But I guess the lure of being paid to play, along with not wanting to go to school anymore were too much. Too bad for us Terps fans, but again, it’s hard not to be happy for Trimble for at least getting his NBA chance, however small it may be.
