After spending NBA summer league with Philadelphia 76ers, Trimble signs with the Minnesota T-Wolves

Former Maryland star Melo Trimble’s quest to make an NBA team as an undrafted free agent will continue with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

ESPN.com reported Tuesday that Trimble has signed a partially guaranteed deal with the Timberwolves.

A source close to Trimble confirmed the report.

Trimble initially signed with the Philadelphia 76ers after going undrafted in June, but saw sporadic playing time with the team’s summer league entry in Las Vegas.

After not playing in four of the team’s first five games, Trimble scored 13 points in 13 minutes in one game and 16 points in 20 minutes in the team’s final game.
