The hope is that Moore will be able to prove himself this summer and eventually gain a spot on the team.

Moore played a major role with Utah State each of the past four years, even starting as a freshman. The Sky View High standout led USU in both scoring and rebounding for three consecutive years and averaged 17 points per game as a senior.

The 6-foot-9 Moore <a href=”http://www.cachevalleydaily.com/sports/article_1902a006-2931-11e7-bf7c-f365dd371482.html” target=”_blank”>told KVNU News Radio in April</a> that he had been working out with several NBA teams. He talked about transitioning from being the go-to guy he was used to being in high school and college.

“It’s tough going from being a guy that is like a superstar player to trying to find your role at the next level,” he said.

Fans will have their first chance to see Moore on July 7 in Las Vegas against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
