Past Season Summaries
2020

Moore played in 27 games during his first season with the Suns. The 32-year-old averaged 4.9 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.2 blocks in 14.4 minutes per game. The Purdue product shot 43.2 percent from the field, 31.4 percent from three and 85.7 percent from the free-throw line. The 2011 second-round pick scored in double figures four times, including a season-high 22 against the Spurs on May 16. During the 123-121 win, Moore went 9-for-10 from the field, 2-for-2 from three and 2-for-2 from the free-throw line. He also registered two rebounds, two assists and one block across 21 minutes of action. The 6-foot-3 guard grabbed multiple rebounds 12 times, including a season-high seven against the Grizzlies on Feb. 20. He also dished out multiple assists 15 times, including a season-high four against the Browns on Feb. 8. Defensively, the 10-year veteran registered at least one steal 10 times and multiple steals five times, including a season-high three against the Pistons on Feb. 5. Per 36 minutes, Moore averaged 12.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks.

2019

The pandemic-shortened 2019-20 season was Moore's ninth season in the Association and his fourth with New Orleans. Moore appeared in 56 of a possible 72 games for the Pelicans, with six starts. The 30-year-old pro averaged 8.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 18.2 minutes per game. Continuing his reputation as a sharpshooter, the veteran hit 1.1 threes per game at 37.7 percent. On six occasions, Moore drilled at least three triples, averaging 16.7 points in those contests. On Dec. 29, the 6-foot-3 wing hit a season-high five triples during a home win over the Rockets. He also accumulated season highs in points (25) and assists (five) during the win in what was arguably his best overall effort of the 2019-20 campaign. On four occasions, the Purdue product grabbed a season-high seven rebounds. From Nov. 11 through Nov. 21, Moore had his longest double-digit scoring stretch, which was six games. He was unsurprisingly efficient from deep during that stretch, hitting 2.0 threes per game at 41.4 percent while averaging 14.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 27.4 minutes, and the Pelicans won four of those six contests. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Pelicans played their final normally-scheduled regular-season game Mar. 8. However, New Orleans was one of the 22 teams invited to the Orlando bubble for the resumption of the campaign. Moore participated, appearing in five of the eight seeding games and averaging 5.8 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 12.4 minutes per bubble contest.

2018

A natural fit in the Pelicans' up-tempo offense, Moore managed double-digit point totals in 31 of 53 games in 2018-19 to cap off his eighth NBA season. Overall, he averaged 11.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. The swingman also provided versatility by making 21 starts at forward and 15 in the backcourt. A threat to explode on short notice, Moore produced at least 20 points eight times. This included a particularly hot stretch that saw him combine for 91 points over three November road games. Moore dished a season-high six dimes against the Mavs on Dec. 5. He'd follow that up by grabbing seven boards - in addition to 21 points - versus the Rockets on Dec. 29. Moore shot an efficient 48.1 percent from the field and a very useful 43.2 percent from behind the arc. Leg issues forced Moore to miss multiple games and in early February, he was shut down for the season.

2017

Following a solid season in which he established himself as a key rotation player for the Pelicans, Moore took his game to an entirely new level in 2017-18. He started 80 of 82 games for New Orleans and averaged a career-high 31.5 minutes per game. Not surprisingly, Moore's increase in playing time led to an increase in his statistical production. Moore finished with career-best marks in points (12.5), rebounds (2.9), and steals (1.0) per game. On Dec. 11, Moore generated a career-high 36 points, including six three-pointers, during a home loss to the Rockets. The Purdue product was also much improved from downtown. Following a 2016-17 campaign in which he hit 37.0 percent of his threes, Moore upped that total to 42.5 percent this past season. In fact, Moore was a more efficient offensive player in general. He shot career-best 50.8 percent from the field, an extremely impressive number for any guard. Moore also hit better than 70 percent (70.6) of his free throws for a second straight season. On Apr. 4, Moore tallied 30 points, four assists, three steals and a career-high seven three-pointers during a home blowout win over the Grizzlies. Toss in the fact Moore was a reliable ball-handler (just 1.2 turnovers per game) and it's easy to see why the 2011 second-rounder earned extended run during his sixth NBA season.

2016

During the summer of 2016, Moore signed a four-year contract with the New Orleans Pelicans. New Orleans was searching for reliable guard production to bolster their starting tandem of Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans, who both had experienced various injury issues. Moore proved to be effective and scored 9.6 points per game over 73 appearances, with 22 starts. It was the highest scoring average of his six-year NBA career. The Purdue product also hit a career-best 1.1 three-pointers per game and averaged a career-high 24.9 minutes per contest. He made his Pelican debut on opening night, Oct. 26, and generated 10 points, four assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in a loss to Denver. On Nov. 10, Moore scored a season-best 20 points during a win at Milwaukee. Moore started 18 of New Orleans' first 21 games before a toe injury forced him to miss three games. When he returned, Moore generally came off the bench, but still averaged 24.3 minutes per game. On Jan. 25, Moore grabbed a season-high seven rebounds during a loss at Oklahoma City. On Jan. 31, Moore drained a career-best-tying five three-pointers on his way to a 17-point, six-rebound performance in a close loss at Toronto.

2015

The 2015-16 season was Moore's fifth in the NBA and his second with the Chicago Bulls. He started 22 of 59 games and averaged 21.4 minutes per game -- that was a big improvement over the zero starts and 9.0 minutes per contest Moore experienced during the 2014-15 campaign. Moore also produced his fifth straight season of improved shooting. He shot a career-best 48.1 percent from the field and career-high 45.2 percent from three-point land. On Jan. 28, Moore replaced Tony Snell in the starting lineup. Moore started 20 of Chicago's next 21 games and posted 12.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.4 three pointers and 0.8 steals during that span. Moore twice scored a career-high 24 points. On Feb. 3, the 6-foot-4 guard tallied 24 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals during a win at Sacramento. On Feb. 21, Moore again posted a career-best 24 points on 10-of-14 shooting in a home win over the Lakers. But on March 17, Moore suffered a left hamstring injury and missed 11 of Chicago's last 15 games. The Bulls finished with a mark of 42-40 and just missed the playoffs.

2014

In September of 2014, Moore signed a two-year agreement with his hometown Chicago Bulls. The East Chicago, Indiana native came off the bench in 56 games for the Bulls and averaged 2.7 points and 0.4 steals over nine minutes per contest. Moore also shot a career-best 44.6 percent from the field and 34.2 percent from behind the arc. His playing time peaked when injuries occurred to Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich. On Mar. 5, Moore turned in a season-high 19 points, plus four boards, during a close home win over the Thunder. Ten days later, Moore posted 12 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in a loss at Oklahoma City. Those two Thunder contests were Moore's only double-digit scoring efforts for the season. Chicago finished the season with a record of 50-32. The Bulls defeated Milwaukee in six games during the first round of the playoffs, but were eliminated by the Cavaliers during the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Moore played in three of Chicago's 12 playoff games. In the decisive Game 6 against the Bucks, Moore generated three points and three rebounds in a winning effort.

2013

The 2013-14 season was Moore's third year in the NBA and his second season with the Orlando Magic. In a career-high 79 appearances for the Magic, the 6-foot-4 wing averaged 6.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.7 three-pointers over 19.1 minutes per game. He also shot a career-best 42.8 percent from the field, up from 39.6 percent last season. Moore also made 34.5 percent of his attempts from behind the arc. On Nov. 26, during a blowout win at Atlanta, Moore posted 12 points and a season-high five assists. On Feb. 18, Moore scored a season-high 17 points, and added two blocks, during a loss at Milwaukee. On April 9, the Purdue product again scored a season-best 17 points during a home win over the Nets.

2012

In July of 2012, Moore was involved in a complicated three-team trade that sent the Purdue product to the Houston Rockets. The Rockets released Moore four days after the deal, however. In early-September, Moore then signed a two-year deal with the Orlando Magic. Moore's playing time increased significantly with Orlando relative to his rookie season with the veteran-stacked Celtics. Moore appeared in 75 games for the Magic, with 21 starts, and increased his minutes per contest from 8.7 last season to 22.4 in 2012-13. On Nov. 9, the 6-foot-4 guard exploded for a career-high 18 points, plus five assists, during at loss at Brooklyn. Moore would match his career-high 18 points two more times during the season. An elbow injury forced Moore to miss seven consecutive games between Dec. 29 and Jan. 12. On Feb. 26, Moore registered his first career double-double with 12 points, 11 assists and one steal during a win at Philadelphia. It was his lone double-double of the season. On Mar. 1, Moore dished a career-high 11 assists during a home loss to the Rockets. On Mar. 25, in a loss to Miami, Moore posted a career-best nine rebounds, plus 13 points and seven assists. He finished the season averaging 7.8 points, 2.7 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 22.4 minutes per game.

2011

Moore was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the second round (55th overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft. He joined a veteran team led by the Big Three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. Due to that season's lockout, Moore signed a temporary contract with the Italian team Benetton Treviso. He returned to the Celtics in December and made his NBA debut on opening day, Dec. 25, with a very brief appearance during a loss at New York. On Jan. 4, he scored his first NBA points in a home win over New Jersey. On Jan. 26, the rookie exploded for a season-high 16 points, plus three rebounds, in a win at Orlando. That scoring outburst would be Moore's only game in which he scored in double digits. In the second-to-last game of the season, Moore grabbed a season-high seven rebounds to go with seven points during a home win over Miami. The Celtics ended the season at 39-27 and eliminated the Hawks and 76ers before losing in seven games to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals. The 23-year-old Moore played in nine of Boston's 20 playoff games, but didn't see much floor time and scored a total of five points.

Moore saw a significantly reduced role for the Pelicans last season, averaging 8.3 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 threes in 18.2 minutes of run. The 31-year-old is moving on this season, as he recently inked a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Suns. It appears Moore is in line to see backup shooting-guard minutes behind Devin Booker -- but given Booker's heavy workload, that wouldn't leave a ton of time for Moore. As a result, he'll likely only be relevant from a fantasy perspective in the deepest formats.
In his third year with the Pelicans, Moore recorded averages of 11.9 points (48.1 FG%, 43.2 3P%, 76.3 FT%), 2.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.4 threes, 0.8 steals and 0.2 blocks in 27.6 minutes across 53 appearances last season. Though he took a small step back in terms of statistical production and a big one back in terms of availability after playing in all 82 games in 2017-18, Moore has held down the fort as a starter for most of the last two seasons. In fact, he has started 116 of 135 games these past two years. With that being said, New Orleans re-tooled this offseason, adding guards and small forwards galore (Lonzo Ball, J.J. Redick, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, Nickeil Alexander-Walker) who will compete with Moore for minutes in 2019-20. Moore's ability to stretch the floor offensively while providing decent defense may be enough to keep him involved in the regular rotation, but his days as a starter are probably numbered. Moreover, an even more massive dip in counting stats is absolutely in the cards, and Moore's value was already lacking on nights when he struggled to score.
With a hamstring injury sidelining Solomon Hill for the majority of the season, Moore was afforded the opportunity to move into the starting five at small forward. He grabbed that chance and ran with it, putting up career-high numbers in scoring, rebounding, steals and three-pointers. Perhaps most impressive was, despite the increased playing time and shot attempts, Moore managed to shoot a career-best 50.8 percent from the field. Moore finished the year as close to a top-100 player in some formats and should return in a similar, if not slightly reduced, role in 2018-19. A healthy Hill could cut into Moore's minutes -- and it remains to be seen how much time Nikola Mirotic will spend at the three -- but if he can manage to sustain his high efficiency and improved defensive play, Moore will be a role player worth a look late in drafts.
Moore's role fluctuated greatly throughout the 2016-17 season, as coach Alvin Gentry opted to roll out a different wing rotation on what seemed like a nightly basis. He ended up drawing 22 starts across 73 games, while posting averages of 9.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 three-pointers across 24.9 minutes per contest. The points per game were a new career high for the 28-year-old, while his 77 total three-pointers were a new high as well despite seeing a drop in his three-point percentage from 45.2 percent during the 2015-16 campaign to just 37 percent. Moore's role for the upcoming year is a bit cloudy. The Pelicans added Rajon Rondo in free agency and they're expected to experiment with Jrue Holiday at shooting guard, which could come at the expense of Moore's playing time. Moore will likely see time at both shooting guard and small forward and will battle for playing time with the likes of Solomon Hill, Jordan Crawford and Quincy Pondexter. Hill is the favorite to start at small forward, so if Holiday does indeed get shifted over to shooting guard, Moore could be stuck on the bench. That likely means a similar or slightly smaller workload moving forward, so Moore's value could be on the decline.
Moore played in 56 games with the Bulls last season and averaged 2.7 points, 0.8 rebounds, 0.6 assists, and 0.4 steals in nine minutes per game to go with 45 percent shooting from the field, 60 percent shooting from the charity stripe, and 34 percent shooting from behind the arc. Moore wasn't expected to play much last season but was forced into action due to injuries to Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich. Rose, Hinrich, and Aaron Brooks are all returning to the team this year, leaving Moore with little playing time if they all remain healthy. Even if one of them were to get injured, Moore is unlikely to provide much production.
Moore is the clear backup point guard, and his quality play last year should earn him some meaningful minutes even while the three guards above him are healthy. If one of them goes down, as happened several times last season, Moore immediately becomes a heavily used part of the rotation.

Moore will start the season as the default backup point, but he will receive competition once Ish Smith returns. At 6’4, he is a good defender who spent time guarding Dwyane Wade in the Finals. He will get every opportunity to win the backup point job for the season.
Moore was Boston’s second-round pick out of Purdue. He showed great across-the-board skills in college, but will probably spend most of this year in the D-League.
