Moore meets with Chicago Bulls

PORTSMOUTH, Va. – Temple guard Ramone Moore had his first meeting with an NBA team.

The 6-foot-4 fifth-year senior guard met with Chicago Bulls’ personnel on Thursday during his off day from competing here in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament.

Like every other NBA team, the Bulls are on hand to evaluate the 64 college seniors participating in the event.

Moore was asked his background and his experience at Temple.  The Bulls also told Moore that they have been following him and have a knack for signing players under the radar. According to someone with inside knowledge, the Bulls were impressed with Moore.

And that could be a good thing for the 22-year-old, who hasn’t received any hype for June’s draft.  Moore’s name is left off updated mock drafts by NBADraft.net and DraftExpress.com.

The Southern High product averaged 17.3 points and 3.4 assists and shot 38.4 percent from behind the arc this season.

He had games of 20 points or more points 10 times, including a 32-point game against Villanova and a 30-point effort against Xavier.

Moore hopes a good performance here at the PIT will enable to get an invitation to June’s NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago.

The 22-year-old, who will receive a criminal justice degree on May 10, is scheduled to travel to Houston on May 13 to train with former 76ers coach John Lucas. He plans to train with Lucas until the draft.
