After E’Twaun Moore’s negotiations stopped with one Italian team, it didn’t take long for Moore to find another.
Boston’s second-round draft pick (have I really spent this much time writing about a second-round draft pick?) will sign with Benetton Treviso just one day after voiding negotiations with Cimbio Varese. (Ridiculous Upside, via Celtics Blog)
Moore has flirted with multiple teams in Europe over the last couple of weeks, but Benetton in Treviso is the team that finally netted him. There’s no mention of an NBA out clause in the team’s official release, but reports said that was something Moore was trying to get if he was going to take his talents to Europe so he could compete for a roster spot whenever the lockout is complete.
I would imagine the contract contains an opt out clause, mostly because Moore’s negotiations with Cimbio Varese stalled because the team would not offer an opt out. But perhaps not.
UPDATE: According to Sportando, Benetton Treviso acquiesced to all of Moore’s original contract demands, meaning he can leave whenever the lockout ends.
Can that please happen soon so we can discuss real rumors, such as “Celtics watch Adam Morrison work out, consider offering summer league invite”?
