2:55pm: Cook has officially signed a two-way contract with the Warriors, the team confirmed today in a press release.
8:10am: The Warriors will fill the open two-way slot on their roster by signing free agent guard Quinn Cook, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical, who reports (via Twitter) that Cook has agreed to a two-way contract with the defending champions.
Cook, 24, went undrafted in 2015 and spent training camp with the Cavaliers that season, then with the Pelicans in 2016. He finally earned a shot in the NBA regular season earlier this year, when he signed a 10-day contract with the Mavericks, then two 10-days and a rest-of-season deal with New Orleans. Appearing in 14 total games, Cook averaged 5.6 PPG and 1.9 APG for the Mavs and Pelicans.
Having been waived by the Pelicans in July, Cook spent training camp and the preseason with the Hawks before being cut on Friday. Now, he’ll have an opportunity to return to the G League, where he excelled last season, averaging 26.0 PPG and 6.7 APG in 39 games for the Canton Charge. He’ll suit up for the Santa Cruz Warriors this year, and will be eligible to spend some time with Golden State.
Once Cook makes it official with the Warriors, there will be just 10 two-way slots still open around the NBA.
