Maryland guard Melo Trimble is "50/50" on whether he will remain in the NBA Draft or return to College Park for his junior season, he told ESPN's Andy Katz after his team's scrimmage at the NBA Combine in Chicago on Friday.
Trimble, whose length and athletic measurements were subpar compared to his peers at the event, played better in Friday's scrimmage than he did the day prior. But according to a tweet from ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Trimble has routinely been mentioned by NBA executives as a player who should return to school.

Former Duke guard Jay Williams, as part of ESPN's broadcast coverage, said there were a number of point guard prospects he would take ahead of Trimble if he were an NBA team, including Oklahoma's Isaiah Cousins, Syracuse's Michael Gbinije, Oakland's Kay Felder, and NC State's Cat Barber.
Trimble said Thursday during interviews with the media that he planned to work out with teams and use the full amount of time allotted to him -- until May 25 -- to decide his future.
