Bulls Rumors: E'Twaun Moore Hoping To Sign Somewhere Next Week

The Chicago Bulls completely dismantled their Bench Mob during the 2012 NBA offseason by letting go of Ronnie Brewer, C.J. Watson, Omer Asik and John Lucas III while also trading away Kyle Korver, but they've also made some moves to reshape the reserve unit and save some money.

Nazr Mohammed and Marco Belinelli have joined the fray as free agents, and E'Twuan Moore could be next. Moore was sent from Boston to Houston in the Courtney Lee trade and subsequently released, but an earlier report from WEEI in Boston noted that Moore could end up camp with Chicago. On Friday, his agent noted that several NBA teams are interested and that he is hoping to sign an NBA deal in the upcoming week, according to a report from Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe:

Mark Bartelstein, the agent for E'Twaun Moore said several teams are interested in his client and he is hoping for a deal in the next week. Moore was traded by the #celtics to the #rockets and waived earlier this week. Bartelstein said Moore playing overseas is not likely because of the NBA opportunities.

Moore appeared in 38 regular season games with Boston last season. He averaged 8.7 minutes per game, shot 38.1 percent from the field and averaged 2.9 points per game.
