Maryland point guard Melo Trimble will work out for the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Keith Pompey.

Trimble spent three years at Maryland before deciding to forgo his last year of eligibility and enter the 2017 NBA Draft. In his final year with the Terrapins, the 21-year-old averaged 16.8 points and 3.7 assists while shooting 43.6 percent from the field and 31.7 percent from three.

Trimble had a phenomenal year shooting the ball from three as a freshman, but his numbers went way downhill the following two seasons. The Upper Marlboro, Maryland native is a capable scorer and a solid passer despite the low assist numbers, but lacks the type of burst NBA teams would typically look for in a point guard. His three turnovers per game during his junior year were also a career high. Draft Express currently rates him as the 92nd best player in their top 100.

Trimble is expected be a late second-round pick at best. The Sixers will have four picks in the second round, with their last selection coming at pick 50. Trimble likely won’t be a target before then, if at all.

Considering how low Trimble’s draft status is, he’ll almost certainly be part of a larger group workout. Expect other names to trickle out in the coming days.
