Maryland's Stone to sign agent, Trimble declares for draft
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Maryland freshman center and Milwaukee native Diamond Stone will enter the NBA draft and sign with an agent while sophomore point guard Melo Trimble will declare but not hire an agent.
School officials announced the decisions Monday.
The 6-foot-3 Trimble averaged a team-high 14.8 points and 4.9 assists last season for the Terrapins, who went 27-9 and reached the NCAA Tournament regional semifinals for the first time since 2003. Trimble averaged 15.5 points over the last two seasons.
Players who declare for the draft but do not hire an agent have until May 25 to withdraw and retain their college eligibility. With other departures, the Terps could lose all five of their starters if Trimble opts to remain in the draft.
