The Boston Celtics Select E’Twaun Moore from Purdue With 55th Pick

 

Doc Rivers just spoke to the media at length about how much he liked the Purdue program, and it appears he was speaking the truth after the Celtics make their second Boilermaker selection of the night, picking 6’4” swingman E’Twaun Moore with the 55th pick in the draft. There wasn’t a lot hype about Moore before this draft, but the four year Purdue star is clearly a steal this late in the 2nd round and appears to be in a similar help now mold that his fellow teammate JaJuan Johnson comes to Boston:

Here’s the scouting report on Moore from Chad Ford at ESPN.com, who had him ranked 45th overall in his top 100:

Positives

* Lanky combo guard
* Good shooter with 3-point range
* Runs the floor
* Can play some point

Negatives

* Needs to add strength
* Not an elite athlete
* Struggles to finish at the basket

From DraftExpress.com

-E’Twaun Moore grades out well statistically, as his 1.0 PPP overall ranks fourth of all wings, and he’s doing it on an impressive 17.6 possessions per game. Moore is the most sure-handed of all wings, as his 9.2% TO% is easily best in the class, especially for someone using that many possessions.

Moore is excellent in the pick-and-roll, where his 0.97 PPP ranks second overall. Moore’s 7.7 jump shots per game are third most in the class, though his 1.0 PPS on them ranks just eighth. He makes a solid 40% of his 3.8 catch and shoot jumpers per game (4th), and 38% of his pull-ups (4th).

There’s a case to be made that Moore is one of the most underrated players in this draft class, and his showing in this sampling does nothing to discourage that notion.

    Doubt he'll crack the rotation, but who knows. We'll see in training camp, and that feels like its 2 years away.

    watching those highlights, I get the feeling his shot would get blocked a lot in the pros. Its the 55th pick though. Anything you ge here is gravy

    all drafted players are raw , takes a while to learn and be a pro , give them a break, i just hope doc plays them

  • Hank Single

    The Celtics dont struggle getting shots, bench or starters, just hitting them. If all he can do is bang home jumpers he'll be a dramatic upgrade over 'guys-not-named-West-coming-off-the-bench'. Accepting that all I am watching is clips, he looks like a marginal athlete (for the NBA, mind you) who knows how to play basketball. I dont think he looks raw in the slightest – just limited.

    But, again, give me someone who can hit a corner 3 some of the time over 0-fer brigade that rolled out in the play offs.

    As a Boilermaker who has followed both of these kids for years – I can tell you that I think you Celtic fans will be pleasantly surprised as you gain more exposure to your new recruits. E'Twaun has overcome skepticism at every level – even during high school, where he led his team to a state title. He is humble, works hard, and always produces more than critics expect of him – and the teams for who E'Twaun has played have a great winning history. He has been a key part of that. The kid is only the fourth player in Big Ten Conference history to score more than 2000 points and be credited with more than 500 rebounds and greater than 350 assists. He has shown consistency through four years in a power conference – something to be said for that body of work. Not to mention that you don't play Boilermaker basketball if you can't defend !
