UNF alum Dallas Moore saw the most playing time in his NBA Summer League stint against the Brooklyn Nets Thursday.

Moore came into the game with 5:30 remaining in the second quarter with the Nuggets down 33-19. This was the earliest appearance he had on the court in the summer league tournament, which is held in Las Vegas.

After two missed shots in the third quarter, Moore found his rhythm late in the fourth. He knocked down a three-pointer with just over two minutes left for his first bucket of the game. A few seconds later, Moore stole the ball and sprinted down court, forcing a Nets turnover.  

Moore added five more points in the final minute behind a floater and a layup.  Moore finished with 7 points, going 3 of 8 from the field, with 1 steal and 1 rebound in 15 minutes.

The Nets eliminated the Nuggets in the second round, 85-74. During his time in Las Vegas, Moore played in two of five games with Denver (1-4).

Moore’s future with the Nuggets is unknown. He could either be invited to the pre-season training camp, go to the development league or move on to explore other options.
