Loose Balls: Orlando inks Moore
For Moore, it's a nice landing spot after being waived by Houston immediately after the Lee deal. Moore played the best ball of his rookie season in Orlando and had a good summer league there, too. Even better for him, he'll get a real chance to make an impression on a young team headed into rebuilding mode.
For Williams, the move is no surprise. The Rockets had until late this month to waive him before his salary for the 2012-13 season became guaranteed. In a league thin on big men, he'll get a look from others in need of size to fill out their roster.
