Celtics second-round draft pick E'Twaun Moore has officially inked a deal with Benetton Treviso of Italy's Lega Serie A, according to his agent. Moore's deal includes the much-coveted opt-out clause that will allow him to return stateside should the NBA lockout end during Treviso's season.

"It's a great situation for E'Twaun," said agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports & Entertainment. "Treviso is a terrific team that plays top European competition and, if the lockout ends, there's an option to terminate the contract -- a small window of time -- so we'll just see what happens.

"It's an exciting chance for him to play -- play at a high level -- and make some money in a great environment."
