NBA Rumor: Melo Trimble Free Agency

5 rumors in this storyline

Melo Trimble has signed a one-year deal with Spanish basketball club Montakit Fuenlabrada, he confirmed to InsideMDSports. The team plays in Spain’s top league, Liga ACB, and needs help after going 5-17 last season, its worst since 1995-1996. The deal allows Trimble to leave if he receives an NBA offer. Multiple NBA teams expressed interest in Trimble earlier this year, but the COVID-19-related shutdown ended those conversations. “I’m still pushing for the NBA. No multi-year deals yet,” Trimble said.
