6-9 forward Jalen Moore has signed a two-way contract with the Milwaukee Bucks, joining former Wisconsin Badger Bronson Koenig as the teams two permitted two-way contract players. The two-way contract is new this year, and allows the NBA team to sign the equivalent of the 16th and 17th players on their roster, with these players expected to play much of the season for the NBA G League team.
Moore played at Utah State and went undrafted this year. He was second team all-Mountain West while averaging 17 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. More shot fairly well from beyond the arc as a senior at 42.6%, and is effective as a slasher. A solid wingspan measuring 6’11” helped him be a strong rebounder this past year. Ball handling and strength are considered his two main weaknesses.
And not to be ignored, Moore and former teammate Sean Harris intimidated interiors during the 2014-15 campaign with the league’s best hair duo.
