After winning the 2011 D-League title, the Energy fell in the first round of the playoffs last season. They will serve as affiliate to Chicago, Denver, New Orleans & Washington this season. Iowa welcomes back Othyus Jeffers after a one year hiatus. Jeffers was coming off the 2008 NAIA Player of the Year as a senior at Robert Morris when he began his pro career with Iowa. He immediately impressed and earned both an All-Star bid and the 2009 D-League Rookie of the Year award. He earned his first NBA call-up from Utah during the 09-10 season. In the 2010-11 season he averaged 21.1 pts & 9.1 reb per game en route to 2 more call-ups, first by San Antonio and then by the Wizards. Jeffers received All-Defensive 1st Team & All-D-League 2nd team honors that season.
