AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. — Pitt men's basketball coach Jamie Dixon said Tuesday that he is trying to help forward J.J. Moore find a new school for his final season of eligibility.

Dixon said he doesn't know if Moore, who turns 22 next week, has filed transfer papers with Pitt.

“We are trying to help him find a school,” Dixon said. “We are trying to help him find the right place.”

The 6-foot-6, 215-pound Moore averaged 18.7 and 18.4 minutes over the past two seasons, but he started only two games — during the 2011-2012 season — in his Pitt career.

Dixon also said forward Cameron Wright, who has been surrounded by speculation that he is leaving, has enrolled in summer school.

“Things can always change, as you know,” Dixon said. “He's been working hard.”
