Former Maryland point guard Melo Trimble worked out with the Philadelphia 76ers Monday, and with the NBA Draft just three weeks away, he still seems to be in the mix for several late picks.
Trimble was one of six players to work out with Philadelphia on Monday. The 76ers have four second-round picks—Nos. 36, 39, 46 and 50.

When we last checked in on Trimble, he was working out with his hometown Washington Wizards. This workout was already on his schedule then, as was one with the Houston Rockets. He’s since made plans with three more teams.

Of course, there’s only so much to take away from this. Trimble’s in the same position as dozens of other prospects, and he’s still widely expected to go undrafted. But workouts are a key part of the process for players like Trimble, and he’s certainly getting chances to prove himself.
His shoe game doesn’t need as much proving, but he showed out in Philadelphia anyway.
