  • Matt Mooney: Shines off bench Monday

    Mooney posted 22 points (8-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds and three steals across 32 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss to Rio Grande.

    Mooney came off the bench but still dazzled and ended as the team's second-highest scorer, just behind Gary Clark who ended with 31 points. Mooney is averaging 14.0 points per game, but it's worth noting he has scored in double digits in all of his eight appearances so far.

  • Matt Mooney: Solid all-around effort

    Mooney recorded 10 points (5-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and two steals across 35 minutes in Tuesday's win over Lakeland.

    Mooney was one of five Mexico City players to score in double digits in this game, though his value in fantasy terms went beyond his scoring figures thanks to a strong all-around effort. Mooney has scored in double digits in each of his three games this season while also adding at least five boards and at least four assists in each of those contests as well.

  • Cavaliers' Matt Mooney: Gets two-way deal from Cleveland

    Mooney will sign a two-way contract with the Cavaliers, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

    The undrafted rookie out of Texas Tech has averaged 12.5 points and 4.8 assists across 24 games with the G League's Memphis Hustle this season. His two-way deal allows him to spend up to 45 days at the NBA level, but Mooney is likely to see most of his action with the Cavs' G League affiliate, the Canton Charge.

  • Matt Mooney: Hot shooting night

    Mooney tallied 28 points (10-13 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two steals and one rebound across 28 minutes of G League action during Monday's 110-107 loss to Agua Caliente.

    It was Mooney's best shooting performance of the season, hitting 76.9 percent of his field goals, including a 7-for-9 barrage from beyond the arc for a season-high 28 points. The 22-year-old had been averaging 11.0 points per game over his past five contests prior to Monday's outburst. His highly-efficient performance was not enough, though, as his teammates shot a combined 5-for-26 from deep and dropped their fourth game of the season. Mooney won't add much value outside of scoring, but he'll continue to see high usage as one of the Hustle's best options from long range.

  • Matt Mooney: Season-high 23 points

    Mooney posted 23 points (8-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five assists, four steals, two rebounds and a block across 40 minutes during Wednesday's 107-95 G League win over the Skyforce.

    Mooney logged a season-high 40 minutes Wednesday and chipped in his highest point total of the season. The 22-year-old's big night may have been a byproduct of Josh Jackson's suspension as well as a shallow roster while Memphis deals with a number of injuries. Mooney looks to remain a common contributor for the Hustle moving forward, as he's averaging 12.6 points, 4.5 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 steals across 32.0 minutes in 13 games this year.

  • Matt Mooney: Scores 20 in win

    Mooney posted 20 points (8-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and three steals across 34 minutes of G League play during Tuesday's 116-110 win over the Suns.

    Mooney has started all but two games in his first G League season since going undrafted out of Texas Tech earlier this year. Through nine games, the 22-year-old has scored 11.8 points on 42.4 percent shooting while adding 5.1 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.8 steals over 30.9 minutes.

  • Matt Mooney: Plays 31 minutes off bench

    Mooney dropped 17 points (7-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with four rebounds, three assists and three steals across 31 minutes during Friday's win over Stockton.

    Mooney had a hard time finding his rhythm from three-point land, but he found other ways to contribute as evidenced by his secondary stats. He played 31 minutes compared to starter De'Anthony Melton, who struggled from the field (3-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt) Friday. The playing time situation should be monitored moving forward to track if the trend continues or if it was merely an isolated incident.

  • Matt Mooney: Waived by Memphis

    Mooney has been waived by Memphis, Jon Roser of the Grizzlies Radio Network reports.

    The rookie guard was waived by the Grizzlies on Monday and will join the Memphis Hustle for training camp. Mooney, who played collegiate ball at Teas Tech, was a member of the All-Big 12 defensive team and averaged 11.3 points, 3.3 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 31.0 minutes last year. Depending on the Grizzlies' needs and Mooney's play, he could return to the NBA later in the season.
