Melo Trimble knows he didn’t perform as well as he could have at the NBA Draft Combine, and will now try to impress during individual workouts beginning next week. The 6-foot-2 1/2 Maryland point guard met at the Combine with the Knicks, Dallas, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Denver and the Lakers.
He has his first workout with the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, when he will go head-to-head with former Oklahoma floor general Isaiah Cousins. Trimble then works out for Milwaukee on Thursday. He has two finals at school and must schedule his workouts around them. He also has workouts scheduled with San Antonio, Atlanta and Philadelphia.
Trimble, who is projected as the No. 38 pick by DraftExpress.com, said ideally he would get a guarantee that someone will take him in the first round, although that seems unlikely at this point. He has until May 25 to withdraw from the Draft and return to campus.
