So much for waiting to see what Joe Smith is doing. The C’s are making a move for Mikki Moore.
Moore’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, confirmed the team has offered the center a contract, and said several other teams have done the same thing, although he wouldn’t divulge their names.
Moore is expected to make his decision today after clearing waivers and becoming an unrestricted free agent. “A lot of teams are very excited about him, so it’s a tough decision for Mikki,” said Bartelstein.
I know, I know… we’d all rather have Joe Smith. But Moore could fill that PJ Brown role just fine. He’s not being asked to carry this team… he’s just being asked to be tall, get a hand in someone’s face, and grab some rebounds. With Tony Allen out, the C’s can really use someone in the back court too. But that pursuit has been pretty quiet.
