Storyline: Draft Workouts
Iowa center Tyler Cook is a big, burly 6-9, 255-pound forward that has a famous connection to these NBA playoffs – he played on the same high school team with current Boston Celtics rookie Jason Tatum. “I can’t say that I knew he would be scoring 23 points a night in the playoffs, but I definitely knew he would be a star in this league,” said Cook, who played his high school ball at Chaminade Prep in St. Louis, Missouri.
Iowa sophomore forward Tyler Cook has submitted paperwork for early entry into the 2018 NBA draft. He has not hired an agent, meaning he could possibly return to the Hawkeyes next season. Cook announced Friday that he is seeking to gauge the league’s interest after he led Iowa with 15.3 points and 6.8 rebounds a game in 2017-18. The 6-foot-9 Cook also ranked seventh in the Big Ten with seven double-doubles and eighth in shooting percentage.
