Raptors ink Jamario Moon
Toronto, ON (Sports Network) – The Toronto Raptors signed free agent forward
Jamario Moon to a two-year contract on Wednesday. Per team policy, financial
details were not disclosed.
Moon played two seasons with the Albany Patroons of the Continental Basketball
Association. He was named the Defensive Player of the Year and to the All-CBA
First Team in 2006-07 after finishing the campaign seventh in scoring (18.8),
fourth in rebounding (7.8), third in steals (2.0) and second in blocks (2.4).
“Jamario is a unique talent that I was glad to have in Albany when I was with
the Patroons,” said CBA acting commissioner Jim Coyne. “He was able to lead
us to the CBA Finals this past year and was a fan favorite for both seasons he
was with us. His jumping and scoring ability will be of great benefit to the
Raptors. While I am sad to see him leave Albany, I am at the same time happy
that he is able to make his dreams come true in the NBA.”
Moon also spent professional playing time in the NBA Development League, the
American Basketball Association and the World Basketball Association.
