American import Ramone Moore has filled the last spot on the Adelaide 36ers' roster for the upcoming NBL season.

The 36ers have lured Moore away from Melbourne United where he averaged 10.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists last season before suffering a calf injury.

Moore previously played across Europe in Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Italy and Israel and also spent some time with the Chicago Bulls at the 2012 NBA Summer League.

"It feels great to join the 36ers. I've heard nothing but great things about the coaching staff, the city and the players," Moore said. "I'm just excited to get to work pretty soon and to play for Adelaide this season and hopefully many more years to come.

"My hopes this season is to be the best team possible. I know Joey and the staff will prepare us as best they can and at the end of the season hopefully we will be holding up a trophy and bringing Adelaide it's 5th ever NBL title."

Adelaide coach Joey Wright is excited by what the 193cm shooting guard can add to his team.

"We watched him throughout the year and we, as a coaching staff, were very excited when he came onto the market because we thought he was one of the better imports in the league," Wright said.
