Professional career[edit]

Moss went undrafted by an NBA team and started his professional career in the 2006–07 season in the Polish League, playing with Polpak Swiecie. Following that season, he played in the NBA Summer League with the Atlanta Hawks. Not able to make the team, he went back to Europe to play in the Italian Second Division, with Aurora Jesi, during the 2007-08 season. With Jesi, he won the Italian Second Division Cup.

The following season, 2008–09, he played with Teramo Basket in the Italian First Division, and enjoyed great success there, finishing second in the league MVP voting to Terrell McIntyre.[1] After playing in the 2009 NBA Summer League with the Portland Trail Blazers, he signed a three-year contract with the Italian club Montepaschi Siena,[2] but he first joined Virtus Bologna on a sports loan, until the end of the contract's first season.

With Montepaschi Siena, Moss helped the team to win eight national domestic titles; winning 3 Italian League championships (2011, 2012, 2013), 3 Italian Cup titles (2011, 2012, 2013), and 2 Italian Supercup titles (2010, 2011). He was also named an Italian League All-Star for the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons.

On July 29, 2013, Moss officially signed a two-year contract with Emporio Armani Milano.[3][4]
