Taze Moore Signs Rest-Of-Season Hardship Deal With Blazers

Free agent guard Taze Moore has inked a rest-of-season deal on the final day of the 2023/24 regular season in order to play for the Trail Blazers in their season finale, the team has announced (Twitter link).

The Blazers previously announced (via Twitter) that they will be missing 10 players today as they wrap up their year at the Golden 1 Center against the Kings. Portland currently occupies the bottom seed in the Western Conference at 21-60, while the 45-36 Kings are fighting for play-in tournament seeding.

Portland has all 15 of its standard roster spots filled, meaning that this Moore contract will be a hardship exception deal. Moore had previously signed a 10-day contract with the Trail Blazers in January — this will technically be considered his second 10-day with the club, though it’ll only cover a single day before expiring.

Across his three games with Portland, the 6’5″ shooting guard averaged a scant 3.3 MPG, posting 2.0 PPG on 60% field goal shooting.

The Houston product, 25, has primarily been in the G League this season, splitting his time between Portland’s NBAGL affiliate, the Rip City Remix, and the Mavericks’ squad, the Texas Legends. All told, he logged averages of 14.7 PPG on .487/.328/.727 shooting, along with 6.4 APG, 4.9 RPG and 1.4 SPG.
