2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Leads bench in scoring
GNew Orleans Pelicans
December 17, 2018
Moore (lower leg) turned in 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 35 minutes in the Pelicans' 102-96 loss to the Heat on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Moore ended up playing more minutes off the bench than all but two members of the starting five in his return from a two-game absence. The veteran wing's season has hit the skids after a strong start, as he'd scored in single digits in six of the nine games prior to Sunday. However, his 50 percent showing from three-point range versus the Heat was certainly encouraging, as Moore had seen a significant downturn in that category as well over recent contests.

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.
