Michael Alexander Moser (pronounced MOH-zer; born November 8, 1990) is an American professional basketball player for JL Bourg of LNB Pro A. He played college basketball for the University of Oregon as a senior. Moser was an All-American player at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) before transferring to Oregon in 2013.
High school and college career
Moser attended Grant High School in Portland, Oregon, where he led the school to a state title in 2008. He originally committed to Arizona, but backed out of his commitment once coach Lute Olson resigned, opting for UCLA.
After getting minimal playing time and struggling with the Bruins' style, Moser decided to transfer. Moser landed at UNLV, where he enjoyed a strong sophomore season in 2011–12, averaging 14 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. Moser was named all-Mountain West Conference and an honorable mention All-American by the Associated Press. As a junior, Moser suffered a disappointing season as he battled a dislocated elbow suffered early in the season.
Moser graduated from UNLV at the end of the season and sought to transfer to another school for his last year of eligibility. He ultimately chose the University of Oregon under coach Dana Altman. As a senior in 2013–14, Moser played 34 games, averaging 13.2 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.1 steals in 28.4 minutes per game, going on to earn All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention honors.
After going undrafted in the 2014 NBA draft, Moser joined the Boston Celtics for the 2014 NBA Summer League averaging 13.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 2 assists in 26.2 minutes per game. On September 1, 2014, he signed with Lietuvos rytas Vilnius of the Lithuanian Basketball League for the 2014–15 season.
On July 24, 2015, Moser signed with Hapoel Holon of the Israeli Basketball Premier League. Moser was originally supposed to join the Phoenix Suns on September 25, 2016, but couldn't do so due to a health issue he had around that time.
On July 8, 2017, Moser signed with the Italian team Pallacanestro Reggiana for the 2017–18 season. On August 23, 2017, he parted ways with Reggiana. Moser has not passed the physical examinations.
