Former Maryland basketball star Melo Trimble will continue his basketball trip around the globe in Spain, as the guard inked a one-year deal with Montakit Fuenlabrada of Liga ACB, he told InsideMDSports.
Trimble rose to prominence during his three seasons at the University of Maryland, which included a phenomenal freshman year in which he averaged 16.2 points per game during the 2014-15 season. He would up that total during his junior year, averaging 16.8 points per contest.
The point guard's time as a Terp not only helped the program regain an elite status in the Big Ten but put him in the record books as he left the school with 1,658 points, good enough for 14th all-time.
Following his junior season, Trimble declared for the NBA Draft but was not selected during the two rounds of the 2017 draft. He initially found success in the G-League, averaging 16.2 points and 5.3 assists per game with the Iowa Wolves. Trimble has since shined in the NBL in Australia/New Zealand, averaging 22.5 points per game with Cairns in 2018-19, and 19.4 points per game with Melbourne United in 2019-20.
Now, he'll look to continue his strong play in Spain's top league. However, despite his success in international play, Trimble still has his sites set on one day making it to the NBA. It's why he continues to only commit to teams for one year at a time.
"I'm still pushing for the NBA. No multi-year deals yet," Trimble told InsideMDSports.
His contract with Montakit Fuenlabrada does reportedly contain an option for him to opt-out of the deal should the NBA come calling at any point.
