Lithuanian club Lietuvos Rytas has signed Oregon product Mike Moser, according to Enea Trapani of Sportando. Meanwhile, agent Adam Pensack tells Hoops Rumors (Twitter links) that Moser, who shined in camp with the Celtics this summer, does not have an NBA out clause in his deal.
While it’s somewhat surprising to hear that the Moser’s deal does not contain an NBA out given widespread interest from around the league, Pensack explained that the power forward wanted the opportunity to play major minutes for a strong Eurocup team. And, while the agent declined to disclose the terms of the deal, he explained that it’s a lucrative one-year pact.
The undrafted power forward averaged 13.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game during his collegiate career and according to his agent, about “half” of the NBA wanted to bring him in for training camp. Pensack and Moser whittled that list down to about three or four clubs that were exceptionally interested, but the opportunity overseas was too good to pass up.
