by July 25, 2011

According to his agent, Moore will soon take his talents to Italy as he waits out the NBA lockout. The Boston Herald reports: “Count E’Twaun Moore among those NBA rookies who won’t be waiting for a lockout resolution. As of today the Celtics rookie was close to signing a deal with one of a number of teams in Italy’s Serie A, according to agent Mark Bartlestein. ‘We’re going through successful talks,’ said the Chicago-based agent. ‘Nothing has been agreed to yet, but we’re talking to a couple of teams. Can we get a deal done? We think so.’ Bartlestein estimated that a deal should be completed by Tuesday for Moore, the Celtics’ second round draft choice, and the Purdue teammate of Celtics first round pick JaJuan Johnson.”
