Report: Celtics' Moore signs with Italian team

Celtics second-round pick E'Twaun Moore has officially signed with Benetton Treviso of the Italian Lega Serie A, according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg.

The deal includes an opt-out clause that will allow Moore to return to the NBA if the lockout ends during his new team's season.

Sportando.net reported on July 25 that the 22-year-old guard had agreed to terms with Cimberio Varese, also of Lega Serie A. Forsberg says that deal was not finalized "in part because of Moore's desire to have a non-restrictive opt-out clause."
