Melo Trimble NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-3 - Point Guard - Maryland

A terrific lead guard prospect who has a great feel for the game. A clutch player who doesn't back down from the big moment.

Pros
Has top level basketball I.Q. and understanding of the game. Terrific set-up man who can also get buckets. A high level shooter with a nice looking three point and mid range shot. Hit an impressive 41% of his three point shots as a Freshman and is also an outstanding free throw shooter.

Runs the offense well and shows great command on the court. Very crafty with the dribble and is difficult to trap/contain.

Cons
Turns the ball over too much and will have to play with better control and fewer mistakes. Can over shoot the ball and needs to become a pure point guard to make it at the next level.

Is an underwhelming athlete who is more of a below the rim player with good but not great speed.

Projection: possible second round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft
