Former 2-time NBA Champion Heading to China


He was hoping to make an NBA comeback after a year out of the league, but when the Sacramento Kings cut him during training camp, 29-year-old point guard Quinn Cook decided to look overseas for a job.

According to @Sportando, Cook is signing with the Zhejiang Guangsha Lions for 2022-23. The 6'1" guard has played 188 games in the NBA averaging 6.4 points and shooting 40.8% from distance.

Cook won a championship ring with the Golden State Warriors in 2018 and another with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020. Although he played more of a bit part with LA, he was a primary member of the Warriors' rotation in 2017-18, getting 22 minutes of run per game, and averaging 9.5 points while shooting 44.2% from three. He also helped the Duke Blue Devils to the NCAA national championship in 2015.

Although Cook was out of the NBA last season, he did put up some impressive numbers in the G League with the Kings' affiliate in Stockton, averaging 23.7 points, 5.8 assists, and 5.0 rebounds in 11 games, while shooting 44.6% from long distance.
