ORnicaja continues to move quickly to try to reverse the disastrous progress of the season with signings. The Los Guindos club has informed of the incorporation of Matt Mooney until the end of this season. The player arrives from the G-League and will spend his first season in Europe. Educated at the US Air Force Academy (1 year) and at the universities of South Dakota (2 years) and Texas Tech (1 year after graduation), he completed an average of 14.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.7 steals in his 4 seasons in the NCAA.
The player occupies the point guard position, where Norris Cole is expected to come out. The one who was going to be one of the directors of the Katsikaris team this course, has not materialized. So much so, that Cole was left out of the squad in the match that Unicaja lost this week against Bilbao Basket and where Dejan Kravic still couldn’t make his debut. Matt Mooney arrived in Malaga at noon and, after undergoing a medical examination, immediately joined the Los Guindos team’s training sessions. He could make his debut in the game that Malaga will play this Wednesday against Ostend in the Basketball Champions League.
Five games in the NBA
In his two years in South Dakota he was included in the best quintet of the Summit League (NCAA division I), just like in his last year in Texas, when with his contribution the university qualified for the Final Four of this division by first time in its history.
Once he finished his university cycle, he has played in the North American G-League, in various teams (Memphis Hustle, Canton Charge, Raptors 905 and Capitanes de Ciudad de México) that he alternated with punctual presences in NBA teams such as Cleveland Cavaliers or New York. York Nicks.
