Moore signed a one-year, $2.4 million contract with the Suns on Sunday, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.
The 31-year-old will be a veteran option off the bench for his new team. Moore averaged 8.3 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 18.2 minutes while shooting 37.7 percent on three-point attempts during 2019-20, though he shot 42-plus percent from deep over the previous two seasons.
Moore posted 14 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Kings.
Moore joined the starting lineup Tuesday with Jrue Holiday (elbow), Brandon Ingram (knee) and Zion Williamson (knee) sitting out. The 31-year-old made the most of his chance and notched his 23rd double-digit scoring performance of the campaign, although his first one in his previous 10 games. Moore might get another extended run of minutes ahead of New Orleans' regular-season finale against the Magic on Thursday.
Moore is in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Kings.
The 31-year-old played only four minutes during Sunday's loss to the Spurs, but he'll join the starting lineup Tuesday with Jrue Holiday (elbow), Brandon Ingram (knee) and Zion Williamson (knee) sitting out. Moore started five games this season and averaged 13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists over 31.8 minutes during those contests.
Moore scored 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding two steals and one assist in 14 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 99-68 win over the Nets.
Moore was one of five Pelicans who scored in double digits, as New Orleans cruised its way to victory against Brooklyn in its first scrimmage before play restarts at the end of the month. Moore was extremely efficient in this game, and performances like this could lead him to a consistent bench role for the Pelicans once play resumes.
Moore (neck) is not listed on the injury report for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.
Moore is good to go after missing Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers with a neck issue. Over his last five games, Moore is averaging 7.2 points and 1.2 assists in 14.4 minutes.
Moore is questionable to play Tuesday against the Cavaliers due to neck spasms, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports New Orleans reports.
It's unclear when the neck spasms first cropped up, but the injury wasn't reported until right around Tuesday's 7:30 p.m. ET tipoff. The 30-year-old figures to play his usual role off the bench, if available.
Moore is coming off the bench Thursday against Utah, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Moore started the last two games for the Pelicans, but he'll head back to the bench for Thursday's contest. He's averaging 22.8 minutes along with 10.2 points and three rebounds in his last five matchups as a reserve.
Moore amassed 16 points (6-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes during Monday's 117-110 overtime win against the Pistons.
Moore struggled from the field but saw heavy minutes with J.J. Redick (hamstring), Jrue Holiday (elbow) and Brandon Ingram (knee), among others, sidelined. Depending on how many of those players are ready to return for Thursday's matchup versus the Jazz, Moore may be in line for another decent minute total, though he's also proven capable of filling it up off the bench on occasion.
Moore is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game at Boston, Celtics' broadcaster Sean Grande reports.
The 30-year-old will enter the starting five for the first time since Nov. 17 with JJ Redick (hamstring) and Jrue Holiday (elbow) out Saturday. Moore is averaging 10.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 20.6 minutes this season, but he figures to see more run versus the Celtics.
Moore amassed 25 points (10-20 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes during Sunday's 127-112 victory over Houston.
Moore stayed hot during Sunday's win, scoring a season-high 25 points. He has scored at least 10 points in four straight games and is quietly making some noise in deeper formats. Both J.J. Redick and Josh Hart failed to make a basket in this one and so Moore simply picked up the slack. He is not a target for those of you in 12-team leagues outside of streaming him in for three-point purposes.
Moore produced 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes during Monday's 112-104 victory over Portland.
Moore was hot during the third quarter, helping the Pelicans wrestle the momentum away from Portland. Moore has not even been a permanent part of the rotation this season and this performance is unlikely to move the needle too much. Even when playing starters minutes, Moore is barely a top-150 player.
Moore (DNP-Coach's Decision) didn't appear in Thursday's 139-132 overtime loss to the Suns.
Moore wasn't called upon in this one after combining for four points across 26 minutes in the last two contests. He scored in double figures in eight of 10 matchups to close out November, but he's been abysmal to start December. As such, those in daily formats may want to consider other options heading into Saturday's meeting with the Mavericks.
Moore posted 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 21 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Clippers.
Moore reached double-figures for the seventh time this season, drilling a season-best three threes in the process. While he continues to hold a steady role off the bench, Moore's role has declined compared to the past two seasons, primarily because he's fallen out of the starting five. He remains a good source of threes, but considering he does little else, Moore can safely be avoided in most formats.
Moore managed 19 points (8-12 Fg, 3-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes during Thursday's 124-121 victory over Phoenix.
Moore found his range during the road win, coming off the bench to score 19 points, including three triples. Moore is coming off one of his poorer seasons and looking to re-establish himself as a rotational piece for the Pelicans. He has the ability to put up points in a hurry but typically offers very little else.
Moore will come off the bench Tuesday against the Trail Blazers.
With Brandon Ingram healthy, Moore will revert back to a bench role. When coming off the bench, he's averaging 7.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 16.6 minutes.
Moore started at small forward and played 40 minutes in Saturday's 109-94 loss to the Heat, finishing with 18 points (7-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, three steals and two rebounds.
With the Pelicans ruling out seven players ahead of the contest, Moore cracked the starting five for the second game in a row. After logging 30 minutes in his first start, Moore benefited from an even larger swath of playing time Saturday after the Pelicans lost Frank Jackson (neck) and Derrick Favors (back) to first-half injuries, leaving New Orleans with just eight players by the end of the contest. New Orleans will wrap up a back-to-back set Sunday against the Warriors and could be down to eight players again, potentially making Moore an attractive low-cost DFS option.
Moore managed 15 points (5-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes during Thursday's 132-127 win over the Clippers.
Moore drew the start with Brandon Ingram (knee), Lonzo Ball (hip) and Josh Hart (knee), among others, sidelined for this one. While Moore struggled with his shot, he still tallied a decent stat line, albeit one that's tailored for leagues that primarily value counting stats. If all three of Ingram, Ball and Hart remain sidelined for Saturday's matchup versus the Heat, Moore will likely draw another start, but if even one of them returns that could push Moore back into a reserve role.
Moore is starting Thursday against the Clippers, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Moore is set to draw his first start of the season with both Lonzo Ball (hip) and Brandon Ingram (knee) out. The Purdue product will start alongside Jrue Holiday, J.J. Redick, Kenrich Williams and Derrick Favors.
Moore didn't leave the bench for the Pelicans on Wednesday, his third straight DNP.
Moore played 12 minutes in the season opener but has failed to see the floor since. A quad injury cut short his 2018-19 campaign and with the Pelicans adding a number of young players, Moore has apparently been squeezed out of the rotation. He could slide back in at some point but even then, he is going to find it difficult to have any real value.
Moore (quad) is likely out for the remainder of the season, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.
Moore has been out since March 8 as a result of a left quad bruise. The injury continues to bother him, and it's likely that he's already played his final game of the year. Assuming that's the case, he'll have finished averaging 11.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 27.6 minutes across 53 appearances.
