Moore will enter his name in NBA draft

Temple redshirt junior Ramone Moore will enter his name into the NBA draft on Saturday, according to two sources close to the situation.

The 6-foot-4 shooting guard is not expected to hire an agent.

“As of today, he hasn’t filed his paperwork,” one of the sources said Friday. “He could change his mind, but the thought is he is going to do it [Saturday].

 “He just wants to get his name out there,” the other source said. “He kind of wants NBA teams to know that he’s on the radar.”

Moore has until Sunday to file paperwork with the NBA. If he doesn’t hire an agent, the Southern High product can withdraw his name any time before the May 8 without losing his NCAA eligibility. The NBA draft is June 23.

Moore averaged a team-leading 15.2 points to go with 4.2 rebounds this past season for the 26-8 Owls. He was a second-team all-Atlantic Ten conference selection in what was his first season as a full-time starter.
