Former Iowa basketball star Peter Jok cut by Phoenix Suns

Peter Jok is in search of a new professional basketball landing spot. Jok, the former Iowa star, was cut by the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday.

Jok had agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the Suns in August. He went undrafted in 2017, and the shooting guard played with the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Big Ten’s leading scorer in the 2016-17 season, Jok averaged 19.9 points per game during his senior season with the Hawkeyes. Jok averaged 12.1 points per game during his Iowa career and was one of the best 3-point threats in Hawkeyes history. Jok hit 216 3-pointers during his tenure in Iowa City and shot 37.8 percent from beyond the arc.

The NBA’s G League is a potential landing spot for Jok. Former Iowa standout Jarrod Uthoff started in the developmental league last season before signing an NBA deal.
