No. 2 – Omari Moore is still an unknown, but he’s an incredibly interesting piece to the Milwaukee Bucks

After going undrafted, Omari Moore inked a two-way deal with the Bucks. He was undoubtedly an under-the-radar name to watch throughout the Summer League for many fans heading in, as they believed the San Jose State product had some legitimate potential. Moore did not play as much as most may have expected, having averaged just 11.6 minutes per outing across the five contests, but he showcased some nice potential in his limited minutes.

Moore’s best game of the Summer League came in Milwaukees’ outing vs. the Sacramento Kings. Logging 25 minutes off of the bench, the forward took advantage of the opportunity by stuffing the stat sheet with seven points, five steals, four rebounds, and two assists. One of the forward’s buckets was a late 3-pointer to keep Milwaukee alive in the game. Yet, his five steals were the big highlight of the game, as Moore showed that he could be a pest on the defensive end.

After seeing that last game, it would have been nice to see Moore play a bit more, especially as he is on a two-way deal. Nevertheless, the wing will be with Milwaukee next season, and the hope is that he can develop into the type of player he showed signs of being in the last game. Moore will likely see prominent time with the Wisconsin Herd next season, and if he excels, he could possibly make his way onto Milwaukee’s full-time roster at some point. He’s got potential to be a very nice two-way wing in this league.
