After announcing his intention to get evaluated by scouts leading up to the NBA draft, Iowa basketball’s Isaiah Moss told reporters yesterday that he has every intention of suiting back up in the Black and Gold next year — unless he gets drafted.
Moss told the Des Moines Register that he’s just going through the draft process to earn a third-party evaluation of his talents in order to improve as a redshirt junior. This is really the outcome everyone outside Facebook commenters expected.
Moss started all 33 games for Iowa last year, averaging 11 points a game. He said he hasn’t been contacted by an NBA team, but if he were to ever get his name called during the draft the opportunity would be too good to pass up.
I have confidence in my game but of course I have to work on a lot more stuff. Really, I just want to get a lot of feedback, see what they think of me, what I need to work on. I know what I need to work on, but it’s good to hear from them.
Moss — and Tyler Cook — have until May 30 to decide if they want to officially declare for the NBA draft and retain an agent, thus shutting the door on their collegiate careers. We look forward to seeing Moss on the court next year, and eagerly await Cook’s decision.
