Ben Moore is a very athletic, energetic combination forward that can get many scores around the basket due to possessing solid athleticism and great motor. He also passes the basketball well.
However, he may likely be a classic tweener, as he does not shoot the ball well from outside the paint area, and he is essentially a power forward in a small forward’s body. He might not have enough perimeter skills to fare well at either the three or the four, but his lack of size could make it tough for him to excel as an interior defender at the next level.
Still, there is no denying his motor and athleticism, and that he was a pivotal role player on one of the top teams in the country before they suffered a surprising loss to USC. At the least, Moore could end up being a welcome addition to a team’s summer league roster, as he could remind fans of former NBA vet, Lou Amundson if he plays well there.
