Denton: Once Rivals, Now Teammates


While Oladipo has plenty to say about Moore, Moore is usually a man of few words as one of the most mild-mannered players on the Magic’s roster. But his teammates and head coach Jacque Vaughn have universal respect for Moore because of his ability to play multiple positions, make key shots and do it without being overly demonstrative.

Moore is seen as a key piece of Vaughn’s rotation because he can play point guard, shooting guard and even some small forward in small-ball lineups. Moore, a 6-foot-4, 191-pound guard entering his third NBA season, said he could care less where he plays as long as he is on the floor competing.

``I’m very comfortable here now because I know what is expected of me. I just go out there and play my role and try to get the job done,’’ Moore said. ``I try to be as versatile as possible and I’m ready to play wherever Coach needs me. Whether it’s shooting or driving, I just try to be ready and help the team.’’
