A strong performance at the G League Elite Camp in Chicago earned former Iowa power forward Tyler Cook an invitation into this week’s NBA Draft Combine in the same city, according to Draft Express.

Cook played three seasons at Iowa. He earned second-team all-Big Ten honors last winter after leading the Hawkeyes in scoring (14.5 PPG) and rebounds (7.6 RPG).
