Lockers rumors: LA are re-identifying the Quinn Cook they cut earlier

The Los Angeles Lakers Free Agency’s first move to cut salaries is to reduce Quinn Cook and his somewhat guaranteed contract, but when it recently appeared on the podcast for “The Road Trip” LeBron said he hopes James will bring the team back to cook.

“Quinn, he’s a pro, he’s definitely going to get a look,” James said at the time. “Hopefully he’s back with us. … We hope we can bring him back.”

Well, the king got his wish Lockers announced in a press release On Friday, Cook returned with his team.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Quinn Cook has been re-signed, it was announced today by Rob Belinga, vice president and general manager of basketball operations. For a group policy, the terms of the agreement are not published.

Cook played 44 games (one start) for the Lakers last season, averaging 5.1 points (.425 FG%), 1.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 11.5 minutes. In 165 career games (29 starts) for Dallas, New Orleans, Golden State and Los Angeles, Cook averaged 6.8 points (.463 FG%, .407 3FG%), 1.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 15.8 minutes. He has appeared in 40 playoff games, averaging 4.1 points (.429 FG%) and 1.1 recycling.

Cook brings the Lakers training camp list to 19 players and 14 warranty contracts, which (functionally) they may have for hat reasons. This closes their off-season moves at least for now.

The Lakers originally (allegedly) planned to extend Cook’s salary, which would explain why he was cut. Since they eventually do not do so, they can bring him back and save themselves on a k400k salary under a hard hat, while Cook will take a K300k haircut from the money he guaranteed to come back:

Cook was a big part of the Lakers hunting chemistry last season, and he can get the ball out. With the addition of Dennis Schrder as another point guard who can handle the ball and defend the big players, he could offer more use than last year when LeBron was the only real ball handler for the Lakers. If Cook now appeared with the bench rows, he could serve a little more purpose and now fit better than he could, he would always have to handle the ball (excluding injury) and not have to serve as a floor general.
