E’Twaun Moore Leads Boston Celtics To Victory In Summer League Opener

1 of 3

E’Twaun Moore scored 16 points and had four assists as he led the Boston Celtics’ Orlando Summer League team to a 73-65 victory over Oklahoma City Monday afternoon. Moore had a team-high seven points in the first half, then ended the game with seven points in the final two minutes to seal the victory for the Celtics.

Moore spent the majority of his team-high 29 minutes playing point guard for the team, where Celtics coach Doc Rivers hopes to see him play in a backup role to Rajon Rondo next season. There is currently no backup point guard signed to the Celtics roster, so there is an opportunity there for Moore, despite his score-first attitude (he took a team-high 16 shots Monday).

In fact, Yahoo! Sports said earlier today:

"With limited money available, the Celtics are hopeful that E’Twaun Moore will impress in the NBA Summer League and assume a greater role next season. With limited money available to obtain an impact player for the backcourt, Boston will either have sign veteran minimum players or look to move one or more of their current players for a player they covet."
