Kris Murray opens up on NBA Draft process, returning to Hawkeyes

On Wednesday, Iowa basketball forward Kris Murray was met with what he called “the biggest decision of his life.”

He’d spent the past six weeks in Chicago going through the NBA pre-draft process. June 1 was the deadline for players to decide whether to stay in the draft or return to school, and Murray’s decision went down to the final day.

“There was definitely (NBA) interest throughout this whole process,” he said Thursday. “I just kind of had to weigh both options, but ultimately come back to Iowa. I have no guilty conscience about not staying in the draft at all. I’m so excited to be back and, yeah, it was definitely a tough decision , probably the biggest one I’ve made my life but I’m happy with the decision.”
