  • Bulls' Tyler Cook: Cooking in G League

    Cook tallied 32 points (11-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-8 FT), six rebounds, two assists and four steals over 37 minutes for Windy City in a 102-101 win over Wisconsin on Wednesday.

    Cook has been unstoppable in his past two games for the G League Bulls, averaging 31.0 points and shooting an absurd 75 percent (21-for-28) from the field. He made two clutch free throws with 11 seconds on the clock Monday to pull Windy City within two before teammate Scottie Lindsey nailed a three-pointer to seal the comeback win. Cook did turn the ball over seven times in the contest, but his offensive dominance overshadowed the occasionally sloppy play.

  • Bulls' Tyler Cook: Explodes for 30 points in G League

    Cook played 39 minutes for the Windy City Bulls on Monday, finishing with 30 points (10-13 FG, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocked shots in a loss to Wisconsin.

    This was Cook's second appearance in a G League contest this season -- he posted a modest 12/7/1 line in his first game last week. The 24-year-old dominated for Windy City on Monday, leading the team in points, rebounds and blocks and missing only three of 13 field-goal attempts. Cook is on a two-way contract with the NBA Bulls, but he has gotten into only one contest for Chicago. As such, he's likely to spend ample time with Windy City refining his game.

  • Bulls' Tyler Cook: Deal converted to two-way contract

    Cook's contract was converted to a two-way deal Saturday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Cook appeared in two preseason games for the Bulls and averaged 2.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 5.9 minutes per game. His status as a two-way player means that he'll likely spend plenty of time in the G League this year.

  • Bulls' Tyler Cook: Joining Chicago for camp

    Cook signed a training camp contract with the Bulls on Wednesday, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Since going undrafted in 2019, Cook has appeared in 45 NBA games between Detroit, Cleveland, Brooklyn and Denver. He's averaged 4.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.9 minutes for his career. The Bulls are thin at power forward, so he'll have a puncher's chance at making the team.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Let go by Pistons

    Cook was waived by the Pistons on Saturday, Bobby Marks of ESPN.com reports.

    Cook appeared in 32 games last season between the Nets and the Pistons. He saw 13.7 minutes per game in his 32 appearances and averaged 4.9 points and 3.0 rebounds. The 23-year-old likely won't have too many options in free agency.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Sniffs double-double in loss

    Cook mustered 12 points (6-8 FG), nine rebounds and an assist across 35 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Heat.

    Cook played 20-plus minutes in each of his last four regular-season appearances and scored in double digits in three of those contests. He took advantage of the fact that the Pistons were already eliminated from playoff contention, but his future role with the franchise remains unclear. He enjoyed a strong end to the campaign, though, scoring in double digits in five of his last nine appearances.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Career-best effort off bench

    Cook scored 17 points (7-8 FG, 3-4 FT) while adding five rebounds, one assist and one block in 34 minutes off the bench during Friday's loss to the Nuggets.

    The second-year big set new career highs in minutes and points with the performance. The rebuilding Pistons have given him a long look as a rotation piece in May, but it hasn't translated into consistent production for Cook. He's scored in double digits in four of the last eight games but totaled only 11 points in the other four.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Seeing jump in minutes

    Cook scored 13 points (6-6 FG, 1-4 FT) to go along with three rebounds and one assist across 16 minutes in Monday's loss to the Magic.

    Cook has served as a backup big with Mason Plumlee (rest) and Jerami Grant (knee) held out of action. As a result, he's drawn 21 and 16 minutes in his last two games respectively. He's shot an unsustainable 12-for-15 from the floor in that span, averaging 12.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists with no defensive stats.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Returns to bench

    Cook will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    After picking up his first career start in Monday's win over the Cavs, Cook will shift back to the bench as Jerami Grant returns following a one-game absence. Cook should still be part of the rotation as a reserve, though it's unlikely he sees 30 minutes as he did as a starter on Monday.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Will make first career start

    Cook will start Monday's game against the Cavs, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

    With the Pistons resting a number of regulars for a game they have no interest in winning, Cook will move into the lineup at one forward spot for the first start of his NBA career. The former Iowa standout hasn't played much of a role this season, though he has did see 21 and 15 minutes, respectively, over the last two games. In Saturday's loss to Washington, Cook posted five points and four rebounds off the bench.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Signing with Pistons for season

    On Tuesday, Cook signed a contract with the Pistons for the rest of the season, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

    Cook had signed multiple 10-day contracts with Detroit in March, and he's now got a firm spot on the squad for the remainder of the year. Through 14 games with Detroit, Cook has averaged 2.8 points and 2.3 rebounds across 10.8 minutes per game.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Inks another 10-day contract

    Cook signed a second 10-day contract with the Pistons on Monday, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

    The former Iowa standout has appeared in each of the last five games after signing his initial 10-day deal back on March 18. He played a season-high 16 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Wizards, posting four points, two rebounds and a steal. Cook should continue to get some looks over the next week-and-a-half but it's unlikely that he becomes fantasy-relevant in leagues of any size this season.

  • Pistons' Tyler Cook: Signs 10-day contract

    Cook signed a 10-day contract with the Pistons on Thursday, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.

    Cook signed a 10-day deal with the Nets in late February, and he'll now provide frontcourt depth for Detroit on a short-term deal. Across four appearances with Brooklyn, Cook averaged just 4.3 minutes per game.

  • Tyler Cook: One board shy of double-double

    Cook notched 26 points (8-15 FG, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block across 37 minutes in Monday's loss against the Blue.

    Cook paced the Wolves in minutes and delivered another strong performance, ending just one rebound shy of posting what would've been his fifth double-double of the season. Cook has also scored at least 20 points in four of his seven appearances, and he's undoubtedly one of the Wolves' main offensive threats on a nightly basis.

  • Tyler Cook: Goes for 22 points Tuesday

    Cook delivered 22 points (8-12 FG, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists and a steal across 33 minutes in Tuesday's loss against Santa Cruz.

    Cook surpassed the 20-point mark once again, and while his rebounding numbers have tailed off in recent games, he remains a reliable scoring threat. He has reached the 20-point mark in five of his eight appearances and should remain a valuable fantasy asset in a struggling Iowa team.

  • Nets' Tyler Cook: Set to join Brooklyn

    Cook is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The 23-year-old has been with the Iowa Wolves in the G League bubble and was averaging 20.6 points, 10.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists through seven games. Cook will provide frontcourt depth for Brooklyn.

    Cook will be available for Thursday's game against the Magic, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Cook signed a 10-day deal with the Nets on Wednesday, and he'll be available right away for Brooklyn. He'll likely only see significant minutes if the team's frontcourt gets hit hard by injuries.

  • Tyler Cook: Pulls down 18 rebounds Saturday

    Cook mustered 16 points (7-17 FG, 1-2 FT), 18 rebounds, five assists and two steals across 33 minutes in Saturday's loss against Fort Wayne.

    Cook pulled down a season-high 18 boards against the Mad Ants, and he has been a regular two-way threat for Iowa so far this season -- he's averaging 19.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per contest while recording four double-doubles in six appearances.
