After going undrafted in June, Jok averaged nine points in three summer league games with the New Orleans Pelicans.
A former first-team All-Big Ten honoree, Jok will now attend the Suns’ training camp in late September with a shot to make their NBA roster. If not, he’ll play for the Northern Arizona Suns, Phoenix’s G league team. He’ll remain a free agent, however, meaning any NBA team can call him up.
As a senior at Iowa, Jok led the Big Ten in scoring at 19.9 points per game while averaging 5.5 rebounds.
Should he impress during Suns camp, there’s a chance he’ll represent the Hawkeyes in the NBA.
