Oregon Ducks Forward Mike Moser Not Drafted, Set to Join Boston Celtics


The NBA Draft came and went and there were no Oregon Ducks called. Of course, this year two could have been with Forward Mike Moser and Center Waverly Austin possibly headed for the NBA. Oregon Junior Joseph Young decided to return to school for his Seniore season earlier in the offseason. Moser has put in his work since leaving the Oregon Ducks and has worked out for fifteen teams and the interest in the six foot eight former Oregon Ducks were there, it just did not fall his way during the NBA Draft on Thursday Night. His opportunity came after.

 

Moser will play in the Summer League as a member of the Boston Celtics. The Celtics first game is on July 5th and the Summer League runs from July 5th to July 11th. According to the Oregonian, Moser is also gaining interest in another NBA Summer League in Las Vegas but no deal was finalized. The Portland native decided to play his final season as a fifth year transfer for the Oregon Ducks, and he helped lead the team into the NCAA Tournament during the 2013-14 season.

His numbers during his year with the Oregon Ducks included averaging thirteen points and close to eight rebounds per game, both career bests.
