The Phoenix Suns have officially signed undrafted Iowa shooting guard Peter Jok, according to a report from Hoops Rumors.
Jok reportedly chose the Suns over three other suitors.
“I feel like it’s a great opportunity for myself because it puts me in a position to earn a spot on the team,” Jok told the Des Moines Register. “And if I don’t, then I’ll be playing for their G League team to work on my game, which I see as a positive.”
Jok averaged 19.9 points and 5.5 rebounds last season with the Hawkeyes.
