According to a University of Iowa release, Isaiah Moss is going to see what the NBA draft might hold for him.
Moss hasn’t hired an agent, opening the door to a return next season. It’s the same thing Tyler Cook decided to do nearly a month ago. Here’s what Moss said in the release:
“My family and I have talked with coach McCaffery and we have decided to enter my name into the NBA Draft without hiring an agent. It is a dream of mine to play professional basketball.
I look forward to going through the process and I thank the coaching staff for helping me through it. I am excited for the feedback and opportunity to workout for NBA personnel so my family and I can make the best decision for my future.
I appreciate the support from my teammates, coaching staff, and Hawkeye fans.”
Moss, a redshirt sophomore, is already 21, so in a lot of ways this makes sense. The clock is ticking for him and it certainly won’t hurt to hear what the scouts want him to work on.
Currently, DraftExpress doesn’t have Moss on its rankings for the draft. I wouldn’t really expect them to, but it’s something to note.
Fran also had a short quote in the release:
“This is an opportunity for Isaiah to learn more about himself and his game during this process. Going through this process will benefit him in the long term. We fully support Isaiah and we will be there to help him along the way.”
Moss averaged 11.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists last season in 24.2 minutes per game. His shooting numbers weren’t awful, hitting 42 percent from the field, 38.6 percent from behind the arc and 87.9 percent from the free throw line.
He’s a fairly talented player and will certainly be welcomed back on the squad next year, should he decide to stay in Iowa City. And, of course, if not good luck on your future endeavours, Isaiah.
