IOWA CITY – Iowa’s top returning player for the 2016-2017 season is going to test the NBA waters – but could return to the team.

Below is a statement from Iowa men’s basketball junior Peter Jok on regarding going through the NBA evaluation process:

“I would like to take advantage of the opportunity that is now presented to underclassmen in going through the process of obtaining input from NBA personnel so that I can make an informed decision about my future. For me, this whole process is for experience to see how it all works and then return to work on my game.

“It’s comforting having the support of coach McCaffery and staff. Coach will continue to be a valuable resource for me during this process. If it’s not the right time for me to make the move to the NBA, I’m excited about returning and leading our team next season.”

Iowa loses four seniors form this year’s team which made the NCAA Tournament for the third straight year.

    If you like to gamble, I tell you I’m your man,
    You win some, lose some, all the same to me,
    The pleasure is to play, makes no difference what you say,
    I don’t share your greed, the only card I need is
    The Ace Of Spades

    Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil,
    Going with the flow, it’s all the game to me,
    Seven or Eleven, snake eyes watching you,
    Double up or quit, double stake or split,
    The Ace Of Spades

    You know I’m born to lose, and gambling’s for fools,
    But that’s the way I like it baby,
    I don’t wanna live for ever,
    And don’t forget the joker!

    Pushing up the ante, I know you wanna see me,
    Read ’em and weep, the dead man’s hand again,
    I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
    The only thing you see, you know it’s gonna be,
    The Ace Of Spades
