Marquise Moore Trying to Find Next Step at the Pro Level

By Tyler Byrum, Contributor

Despite the success of Marquise Moore during his senior season at George Mason, there are still some that are not convinced of the double-double phenom.

This summer Moore tried out for two teams the Philadelphia 76ers and Houston Rockets and had encouraging performances in live-ball action drills. Yet neither team, or any team in the NBA, took a stab at him during the summer leagues.

Averaging 16.9 points and 10.9 rebounds last year for Mason, Moore has a unique skillset for a guard. His ability to attack the rim, with or without the ball, is difficult to teach a player once they get to the professional level.

Currently, the Mason graduate is in limbo trying to decide whether to take a G-league route to the NBA or if he should try and find success internationally where there are more opportunities. Earlier this month, the 6’2″ guard earned a spot at the G-league Player Invitational in Chicago but has yet to hear back from any teams.

Many Mason fans know that whichever team were to pick him up is sure to get a steal that can have an instant impact.
