Iowa basketball has had some unfortunate pieces of news ahead of the 2019-2020 season. The team may be without Jordan Bohannon as he recovers from surgery, and recently lost sharpshooting guard Isaiah Moss to transfer.

That is on top of Tyler Cook's departure to the NBA. Luckily, the team returns Joe Wieskamp, who will be absolutely crucial for the Hawkeyes this season.

Moss averaged 9.2 points for the Hawkeyes, an NCAA Tournament team, last season. He shot over 42-percent from three point range, and has been over 35-percent in each of his college seasons.

He initially committed to Arkansas as a grad transfer, but will instead join Kansas, which is plugging a number of holes in its backcourt.

Fran McCaffery was asked about Isaiah Moss' decision, and wished the former Hawkeye the best.

He discussed the move on Tuesday. From KWWL:

Today coach Fran McCaffrey was asked about the Moss transfer.

“I have said this before I love the kid..really root for him a really good player for us for three years hope it works for him a really good friend of coach Self, I will root for him.”

Moss' final appearance for Iowa was an impressive one. He scored 16 points, knocking down 3-of-5 threes in the team's overtime NCAA Tournament loss to No. 2 seed Tennessee.
