Moore, 31, halted his playing career in February 2019 to help iron out the wrong faults. In 1998, Iron, 40, was sentenced to 50 years in prison after being found guilty of stepping into a Missouri home and shooting the homeowner twice. In March, a judge ruled that the prosecution had suppressed fingerprint evidence that strengthened Iron’s defense. He was released from jail on 1 July.
Moore won four WNBA championships as a member of the Minnesota Lynx and was the league MVP in 2014. He was a 2011 WNBA Rookie of the Year, six-time All-Star and five-time All-WBBA first-team honoree. She won two national championships at UConn.
Asked if he had plans to return to basketball, Moore said he had no next step yet.
“I’m really just trying to breathe through this long, long battle,” Moore said. “There are too many unknowns for a lot of us right now. So I’m still in that camp.”
