The Nuggets add another point guard to the summer squad

NCAA Basketball: North Florida at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union is reporting that Dallas Moore from the North Florida Ospreys will be joining the Denver Nuggets for Summer League.

From the article:

“I thought my workout there [in Denver] went really well,” Moore told the Times-Union. “I felt like I got great feedback from the coaching staff and thought my interview with the front office went well. That stuck out a lot. I can’t wait to get started.

“My agent [Adam Godes] felt like this is the best fit. As long as I can showcase my skills and show what I can do, that’s all I can ask for.”

The article goes on to discuss him as a “servant” with a high basketball IQ, but he’s known as a scorer and gunner. Think of him as this year’s Josh Adams without the hops - except Adams might also be at Denver’s Summer League as he’s been seen working out with the team.

Moore is listed at 6’1 but that might be a little optimistic. He’s not really an assist guy, though he’s careful with the ball as well. He shot 7+ threes a game last year for the Ospreys and made them at a 38% clip. He’s a score-first player with a good handle and a willingness to pass if his shot isn’t there. The Nuggets worked him out, as he said, and were obviously looking for a second-round point guard to grab late in the draft.

Denver took Monte Morris over Moore, but the two will get a chance to compete in Summer League now as well.
