LOGAN – It appears former Utah State basketball player Jalen Moore has found a spot on an NBA Summer League roster. Just one day after the NBA Draft, ESPN NBA reporter Chris Haynes reported that Moore will join the Milwaukee Bucks.

The hope is that Moore will be able to prove himself this summer and eventually gain a spot on the team.
Moore played a major role with Utah State each of the past four years, even starting as a freshman. The Sky View High standout led USU in both scoring and rebounding for three consecutive years and averaged 17 points per game as a senior.
The 6-foot-9 Moore <a href=”http://www.cachevalleydaily.com/sports/article_1902a006-2931-11e7-bf7c-f365dd371482.html” target=”_blank”>told KVNU News Radio in April</a> that he had been working out with several NBA teams. He talked about transitioning from being the go-to guy he was used to being in high school and college.
“It’s tough going from being a guy that is like a superstar player to trying to find your role at the next level,” he said.
Fans will have their first chance to see Moore on July 7 in Las Vegas against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
