Cook will sign a second 10-day contract with the Cavaliers on Monday, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Cook joined the Cavs on a 10-day deal back on March 10, and with the contract set to expire Sunday, the team will bring the guard back for at least another week and a half. He has appeared in four games for the Cavs, totaling 20 points, eight rebounds, six assists and three steals across 51 minutes.
Cook scored five points (2-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and handed out three assists in 18 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Hawks. The Cavs acquired Cook via a 10-day contract midway through last week, and he's benefited from a pair of blowouts in his first two games in Cleveland. Cook was able to play 17 minutes and post 13 points in Friday's 34-point loss at New Orleans. In non-blowouts, he may struggle to find consistent minutes, but either way, Cook is unlikely to play enough to warrant fantasy attention.
Cook will sign a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers on Thursday, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. The 27-year-old was cut by the Lakers in late February after averaging 3.9 minutes across 16 appearances this season. Cook is expected to be available for his team debut Friday in New Orleans.
The Lakers informed Cook of his release following Monday's 127-124 overtime loss to the Wizards, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Los Angeles was satisfied enough with how Cook had performed as a depth guard, but the team elected to part ways with him to create more cap flexibility before his 2020-21 salary became fully guaranteed Wednesday. After releasing Cook, the Lakers are now able to sign two players to prorated veteran's minimum deals after Feb. 24. The veteran guard has experience as a deep bench option on champion clubs in the Lakers and Warriors, so he shouldn't have too much trouble finding a job with another team.
Cook totaled seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and one block across 11 minutes in a Lakers' 109-98 loss to the Nets on Thursday. With Dennis Schroder (COVID-19 protocols) out of the lineup, Cook scored a season-high seven points and played a season-high 11 minutes. However, even if Schroder does miss more time, Cook isn't someone to target as he has only played in 16 games this season.
