Due to injuries and a talent dearth, the Pelicans are struggling for NBA players in their backcourt and on the wing, which means those that have such talent are going to receive big minutes. Moore is one of the main beneficiaries of this; starting all six games at shooting guard thus far, averaging 12.3 points per game on very efficient shooting; indeed, his team could certainly benefit from him shooting more often.

E'Twaun Moore
PG/SG, 6’4, 189lbs, 28 years old, 6 years of experience

Moore has become a fine NBA role player. A sometime scorer, who hits open shots from outside, shoots some pull-ups and finds the open lane when possible, along with being a capable secondary ball handler and good defender of two guard positions. Moore deflects the ball, finds his spots, plays within his limitations and is a steady bench hand. This gives him some trade value, but perhaps more keep value. He needs to keep playing aggressively, because he is a better player when he does this.

Player Plan: Three years and a shade under $26 million remaining, with no options. It’s not a bad deal, roughly non-taxpayer MLE money, but with money tight elsewhere, it might need to be moved. It’ll certainly be easier to do so with his than with the Asik or Hill deals.

Picks 55 and 56: Boston chooses E'Twaun Moore of Purdue, who once again pairs up with his four year team mate JaJuan Johnson (Robbie Hummel coming next year), and may well have been the best player available at that time. That is not to say that he will necessarily contribute anything of significance at the NBA level, but BPA is always a solid ploy.

E'Twaun Moore - Undersized for the position, Moore made a mark through a quirky inside-the-arc game, built around craft and skill rather than physical tools. And then inevitably, once he got better as a three point shooter, he started casting them up instead. Nevertheless, his offensive versatiliy is complimented by his defensive intensity, and that too has been further complimented by his combine measurements - Moore may only be 6'4, but his wingspan is an impressive 6'9. That will be enough to get him in, because while he may have no one specialist niche, he does enough of everything, and is just simply a good player. And even if he doesn't last long, a strong European career awaits, as it has done for Romain Sato.

[P]retty much all the Boilermaker's offense is dependent upon three players; E'Twaun Moore, JaJuan Johnson and Lewis Jackson.

Moore's biggest improvement from last season to this was in his three point stroke, which went from decent to quality. The downside to that, as is so often the case, was that Moore began to use it too much, going away from the crafty agile inside-the-arc slashing game that had gotten him that far. But Moore has rather struck a balance now between the two, and is the team's most important perimeter player. He will take on guards bigger than he, both offensively and defensively, can score in isolation, does not take bad shots, and can create space for himself through body control, a decent handle in traffic, and decent agility. It's a somewhat unconventional game he plays, yet that works only to his advantage.
