Cook, 29, was in camp with the Kings this fall competing for a spot on the regular season roster, but was beaten out by Matthew Dellavedova and was waived at the end of the preseason.
A two-time NBA champion with the Warriors and Lakers, Cook was also out of the league last season after appearing in 188 games across the previous five years. He has averaged 6.4 PPG and 1.6 APG in 188 career NBA appearances (14.1 MPG).
Cook spent a chunk of the 2021/22 campaign with the Stockton Kings, Sacramento’s G League affiliate, where he averaged 23.7 PPG, 5.8 APG, and 5.0 RPG with an impressive .524/.446/.885 shooting line in 11 games (35.3 MPG).
This will be Cook’s second stint in an international league and his first time playing in China. He suited up for Lokomotiv Kuban in Russia in 2021, but only spent about two months with the club.
