He can have a nice career with the right team, which will use him as a situational player off the bench. He can energize a team. He's got to keep his nose clean. He won't be a star, so one misstep and he will be gone.

the free ride is over, might have to figure out how to work for a living.

A long shot, but can be used as a strong guy coming off the bench and get some rebounds where no one on the team can get.

I wish Trevor nothing but the best but I think he'll be playing over seas someplace.

Show the experts the film of his game against Indiana and Zeller at Williams.

Weakest hands for a big man I have ever seen. He will be unable to wrestle away a rebound from another NBA-caliber player. I agree with kev5115, overseas is where you will find Trevor.

Bigger picture, he had some errors in judgment and some injuries but he has become a good young man and unlike many, he has his degree. He is well prepared to work for a living, whether it is in basketball or not.

No chance whatsoever in the NBA. Overseas guaranteed. All those games he walked back on defence? Oh yeah... that surely will impress somebody. - - - The wrong way.

"Weakest hands for a big man I have ever seen. He will be unable to wrestle away a rebound from another NBA-caliber player."---Take a look around the NBA. It has gotten pretty soft. I'm having a hard time imagining a lot of NBA players who could wrestle a rebound away from him.

Good luck to you,even if you have to go over seas for awhile.Yes you made some mistakes growing up,your biggest mistake was actually playing for clueless Tubby Smith.
