Cowan was selected second-team All-Big Ten last season after averaging team highs of 15.6 points and 4.4 assists for the Terps, who finished 23-11 and reached the second round of the NCAA tournament after missing the postseason two years ago.
If Cowan stays in College Park, Maryland will return seven of its top eight scorers from last season. The one exception is sophomore center Bruno Fernando, a first-team All-Big Ten and all-league defensive player who is expected to be taken in the first round of the draft.
If Cowan decides to pursue a professional career, the Terps would be in a similar situation as they were after Trimble left following his junior year — without an experienced ballhandler to play alongside or behind sophomore Eric Ayala.
Before Cowan’s freshman year, Trimble announced right at the midnight deadline that he was returning for his junior year. He was not picked in the draft, spending his first pro season in the G League and last season playing in Australia.
According to the Kings, Wednesday’s workout will also include Kansas State guard Barry Brown, Providence guard Alpha Diallo, Minnesota guard Amir Coffey, Washington State forward Robert Franks Jr. and Kansas forward Dedric Lawson.
