Jack Cooley has reached agreement on a contract with Unicaja Malaga of Spain for the remainder of the season, Solobasket.com reports.
Cooley had previously signed on to play with the Jazz's D-League affiliate, so he'll likely have to buy out of that deal before he's formally cleared to play overseas. The former Notre Dame forward played in 16 games with the Jazz last season, but was cut by the team in training camp this fall.
Jack Cooley was waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Cooley lasted just a week with the Cavaliers and will now head back to the open market. He spent his rookie year with the Jazz last season, playing in 16 games, while averaging 1.7 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.4 steals over five minutes. The former Notre Dame product may get some looks over the next few days from a few desperate teams, but more than likely he'll end up in the D-League for the start of the season.
Jack Cooley put up six points (2-6 FG, 2-4 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist and one block across 18 minutes in a win over the Mavericks on Monday.
The 15 rebounds in 18 minutes is an impressive number, but it likely wont change his fantasy value. With Anderson Varejao returning from an Achilles injury and Timofey Mozgov securing the starting role, it will be tough for the Cavs to carve out any minutes for Cooley this season
Jack Jack Cooley has agreed to a contract with the Cavs, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
He'll add depth at power forward, but Cooley played in just 16 games with the Jazz last season as a rookie before getting waived by the team earlier this week. The Notre Dame product averaged 16.8 points and 12.5 rebounds over 20 games in the D-League last season.
Jack Cooley was waived by the Jazz on Tuesday, the Deseret News reports.
Cooley has shown sparks of improvement over the past year within the Jazz organization but ultimately his limited outings on the court weren't impressive enough to make the 15-man roster this season. He'll look to land on another NBA team before the season starts anew but he won't likely end up anywhere that will afford him legitimate playing time.
