Moore is a tall and lanky point forward prospect who is still growing into his body but shows flashes of big-time ability. He’s a natural passer and high level athlete who is showing rapid improvement in his perimeter game.
Moore has nice size/length for a wing and a high level of athleticism. He’s very quick in transition and changes ends like a deer. He shows good burst to get by defenders and shows off his excellent length when taking it to the rim.
He’s got a quick first step and can get up to top speed in a hurry. He’s an excellent finisher with either hand and shows a lot of hang time, body control and creativity with his finishes.
Moore is showing some lead guard skills and is more than capable of leading the fast break and finding cutters. He seems to really enjoy passing the ball and shows a good understanding of spacing and an ability to draw defenders with the dribble, then find the open man. His height allows him to see over defenders and he seems well suited for the modern NBA game, where versatility and ball movement are key.
He excels at using the dribble to get into the lane and has a soft touch around the rim and can hit the floater. Has a nice crossover move and gets great width on his dribble and can really throw defenders off balance with his shake n bake moves.
Moore needs to add a lot of muscle. He’s got thin legs and lacks lower body strength and he needs to gain a lot of upper body strength as well.
His outside shooting is a work in progress and he’s not yet a consistent threat from downtown.
Projection: first round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft
