Spurs won’t extend qualifying offer to Ben Moore

Ben Moore, Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs 6-foot-8 power forward Ben Moore, signed to a two-way contract, will not be extended a qualifying offer by the team, per The Athletic’s Jabari Young.

The Spurs inked Moore to a two-way deal back in November of 2018. He had yet to appear in silver and black and instead solely competed for San Antonio’s G League affiliate team, the Austin Spurs.

Young adds that despite Moore’s unrestricted free agency status following the Spurs not extending the qualifying offer, the 24-year-old will indeed play for San Antonio’s Summer League team in both Salt Lake City, Utah, and Las Vegas, Nevada. Also, Moore “already” has interest from NBA teams, reportedly.

Per the two-way contract stipulation, the NBA enacted a deal that would allow teams to sign G League–bound players and limit the number of call-ups to 45 days. Moore, however, as previously stated, has yet to appear for the big league Spurs and looks to be fighting for a roster spot in the NBA should he perform well in Summer League.

This past season in the G League, Moore averaged 12.8 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 1.96 assists in 29.2 minutes per game 47 total appearances, shooting 55.5% from the floor, 36.8% from the field, and 78.3% from the free throw line.

Moore previously played in the Summer League for the Indiana Pacers the past two years.

Moore spent four years in the AAC with Southern Methodist University. Playing for the Mustangs, Moore put up 9.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per contest in 135 total games, shooting 53.8% from the field and 66.3% from the charity stripe.

The 6-8 forward went undrafted following the 2017 draft.
