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.
