Former Purdue Boilermaker E’Twaun Moore Signs with Chicago Bulls


E’Twaun Moore spent four years as a Purdue Boilermaker and set some impressive records along the way. After being drafted by the Boston Celtics in 2011, Moore has struggled to stick with a team long enough to see significant playing time and he will now be joining his fourth team in four years after signing a free agent deal with the Chicago Bulls.

While at Purdue, Moore set program records with most minutes played (4,517), three-point field goals made (243), games won (107), games played (140) and total starts (137). He also became only the third player in Big Ten History to join the 2,000 points, 500 rebounds and 400 assists club for their career.

It appeared back in July that Moore was destined to play overseas next year after not being re-signed by the Orlando Magic, but rumors began popping up in early August that the Chicago Bulls were interested in signing him.

Moore inked the deal a couple of days ago and will now have to contend with Kirk Hinrich, Aaron Brooks and Tony Snell for playing time at the guard positions.

It’s unlikely Moore will see close to the 20 minutes per game that he was getting with the Orlando Magic, but he has proven himself to be a solid bench player and someone coaches can trust to get the job done on the floor.

For his career Moore is averaging 6.2 points, 1.8 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game.
