NBA hopeful Dallas Moore saw limited minutes during the Nuggets’ summer league games, playing for a combined nine minutes during his first three games in Las Vegas.

Moore, arguably UNF’s greatest basketball player, did not play during his first summer league game on July 7 against the Houston Rockets. The Nuggets lost the game 102-99.

Moore debuted on July 9 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Nuggets were down 66-44, when Moore came in late during third quarter with 3:38 remaining. A little over a minute elapsed before Moore stole the ball forcing a Timberwolves’ turnover. With 59.2 seconds in remaining in the quarter, Moore knocked down his well-known floater for a 70-51 score.

In the fourth quarter, Moore connected from downtown bringing the score to 77-59  in the Timberwolves’ advantage. As the game reached just under four minutes, Moore was substituted out with three other players to end his night. Moore finished with five points, going 2-5 from the field,with two steals and one rebound in nine minutes.

Moore did not play in the July 10 game against the Toronto Raptors. The Nuggets lost 82-81 after a turnover-filled stretch.

The youthful Nuggets team is 0-3 in Las Vegas while current guard Malik Beasley, who was the 19th overall pick in the 2016 draft, has had double digits performances.

Moore’s minutes may have been limited because he is one of seven guards listed on Denver’s summer league roster. He is also the smallest on the team being at least two inches shorter than all the other players.

While he hasn’t been called on for much in-game time, Moore has been seen on the Denver Nuggets Twitter making basket after basket in practice.

There will be at least two more games in the tournament for Moore and the Nuggets  this summer.
