There wasn't much fanfare when the Chicago Bulls signed E'Twaun Moore to a partially guaranteed two-year contract back in September. During his three-year NBA career, the 25-year-old Purdue product hasn't exactly been a major headline producer; his stints with the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic were more agate-alike, really. But despite Chicago already boasting a backcourt filled with more decorated names — Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Kirk Hinrich, Aaron Brooks — Moore looked at the Bulls and saw opportunity.
"I knew I was coming to a great team, and I knew we had a deep team," Moore told returning champion Craig Sager. "I just wanted to come in and try to contribute any way I could — defense, offense, you know. Just be ready to play."
I think it's safe to say that Moore was ready on Thursday. I'm not sure, however, that the Oklahoma City Thunder were ready for him.
