SEPTEMBER 22: Cook officially signed his contract with Portland on Tuesday, according to RealGM’s transactions log.
Cook struggled to find a permanent home last season, playing in 16 games with the Lakers before being waived in February, then playing seven games with the Cavs on a couple of 10-day contracts.
It was reported yesterday that the Warriors were planning on working out Cook this week, but it appears he’ll no longer be an option for Golden State.
Known for his strong locker-room presence and shooting ability, the Washington, D.C. native holds a career slash line of .461/.408/.795 in 14.1 MPG.
Once they officially finalize their agreement with Cook, the Blazers will have 18 players on their training camp roster, with two spots remaining, including an open two-way contract.
