Ranking the young Milwaukee Bucks: No. 5 – Omari Moore, 22
Immediately after the 2023 NBA Draft concluded, the Milwaukee Bucks signed Omari Moore of the San Jose State Spartans to a two-way deal. Fans were excited about the deal and wanted to get a closer look at Moore in the Summer League. Moore didn’t play a prominent role, but he will be with the Bucks next season regardless, and he’s got potential that needs to be unearthed.
During his four-year collegiate stay, Moore showed that he could be a solid scorer and facilitator, having averaged 11.2 points and 3.7 assists per game. On top of that, he’s a 6-foot-6 wing who gives the Bucks more versatility. The Bucks needed more youth, scoring, facilitating, and wings above 6-foot-5 on the roster, and Omari Moore checks off every single box there.
Moore, like most two-way players, won’t play a prominent role next season, but he can certainly use his rookie year to develop, especially with time in the G-League. If the Bucks can develop the wing, they could potentially have a quality 6-foot-6 scorer and passer on their hands to add to the bench brigade and shore up their wing depth. He’s just 22 years old and should fit in quite nicely.
In a league that is quickly becoming dominated by wings, a player like Moore could be an incredibly value piece eventually, so the Bucks should put Adrian Griffin’s player-development skills to use.
