Playing on a non-guaranteed contract, it would be easy to see why Moore would have himself as the No. 1 priority this week, as the Celtics have until midnight Sunday to bring the second-year Purdue guard back next season. But through two games in Vegas, the unflappable Moore has picked up where he left off in Orlando, caring more about steering a formidable Celtics summer ship to win after win than attempting to fill up the stat sheet. Of course, coming through with great box scores never hurts one's cause for a job in the NBA, and that's what Moore did Tuesday night, pouring in a Summer League-high 25 points on 10-of-19 shooting to go along with seven rebounds and two assists as the Celtics escaped a Chicago Bulls comeback and emerged with a 79-74 victory to move to 2-0 in Vegas action.

But disenchantment clearly played a role in Ray Allen’s flight to the Heat on Friday for a three-year contract worth $9.5 million. And yes, there is something about that Heat uniform that will look particularly strange on Allen. “Well, it’s kind of like a rivalry. Yeah, it’s kind of ironic he went there,” said E’Twaun Moore. “Anything can happen. That’s one thing I’ve learned. Sometimes you have to make decisions that are best for yourself, and not everyone else. Sometimes you don’t know. That’s something about people who have composure and can keep things in. They just take care of business. Boston Herald

Celtics rookies JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore have combined for a mere 34 minutes of floor time through the first eight games of the 2011-12 season, but coach Doc Rivers said Friday night he's both encouraged by their early progress and that he would prefer not to send them to the D- League given their value to the parent club during a game-heavy season. "This year, I hope we can keep everyone up, honestly, because I think there will be games where guys will be sitting and guys will be going, so I don’t know about the D-League this year," said Rivers. "I don’t know if that hurts them or helps them, honestly, but we have to think about the team this year, and I think it would probably be better for them to hang around us." ESPN.com

The Celtics have reportedly changed their stance on whether they'd require a long-term commitment before trading for Paul. It was believed to be a requisite to a deal getting done when SI.com first reported their interest in Paul. Sources said their offer includes point guard Rajon Rondo, a 2012 top-10 protected first-round pick from the Clippers, second-year guard Avery Bradley and rookie guard E'Twaun Moore. Another source said restricted free agent Jeff Green would likely be part of that deal as well. SI.com

Beyond playing some professional basketball for Benetton Treviso during the NBA lockout, Celtics rookie E’Twaun Moore is especially thankful for something else - the option in a one-year, $200,000 contract that will allow a return to the Celtics once the NBA lockout ends. “I probably would have stayed here,” Moore said this afternoon of what he would have decided if agent Mark Bartlestein hadn’t been able to find a team willing to give him an escape clause. “I was real fortunate to find this situation.” Boston Herald
