What are Charlie Moore’s chances with Detroit Pistons?
Unlike some of the other players, like Stanley Umude, Moore was not playing in Las Vegas on an Exhibit 10 contract, which brings an automatic invitation to training camp. He was signed just for summer league, so Detroit’s obligation to him has now ended.
Moore certainly earned a tryout in training camp with his play but the Pistons right now (and we emphasize right now) are hip deep in point guards, or players who can play the point:
- Cade Cunningham
- Killian Hayes
- Jaden Ivey
- Saben Lee
- Cory Joseph
- Alec Burks
Being a seventh-string point guard is not really a position on an NBA team, so Moore’s chances would be slim, if the roster remains the same.
The Pistons do not have a balanced roster. Too many guards and centers but too few wings. Of course, training camp is not for 2 1/2 months, so there is plenty of time to make some moves, and Weaver loves making moves.
Knowing there is an unusually experienced rookie point guard, who has played well in the Pistons system, out there, could make Weaver more liable to pull the trigger, and involve some of the guards in trades.
Moore made a big impact on the Pistons summer league team despite not being six-foot tall. What it leads to will be interesting to follow, now that all on-court activity is over in the NBA.
