The Warriors have brought in the likes of Darren Collison and Ryan Arcidiacono for workouts before. The latest name to emerge as a potential option is their former player, Quinn Cook, who was on their 2018 championship-winning roster. The Warriors Talk recently reported that Cook is set to have a multi-day workout with the team.
"The Warriors’ elusive search to fill their vacant 15th roster spot is still ongoing. The latest name who has received interest from Golden State? Former Warrior and two-time NBA champion, Quinn Cook. Cook is set to head to the Warriors’ facility this week for a multi-day workout with the team, a source told me on Saturday."
Jordan Poole is currently the Golden State Warriors' primary backup option for playing rotation minutes for Stephen Curry. The Warriors do not have any primary ball-handling guards apart from them and could find themselves in trouble if either of them misses time in case of injuries.
NBA Rumors: Is Quinn Cook a good fit for the Golden State Warriors?
Quinn Cook did not have the best of seasons last year. He was waived by the LA Lakers mid-season and signed multiple ten-day contracts with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He did not receive many opportunities with either franchise, making just 23 appearances overall.
Cook is still considered a reliable backup option in the point guard position. He enjoyed the best stints of his career with the Golden State Warriors, where he also started 28 games.
Quinn Cook's career-best season was with the Golden State Warriors in the 2017-18 season. He averaged 9.5 points, 2.7 assists, and 2.5 rebounds a game during that year. The two parties are familiar with each other. His experience of playing on the 2020 championship roster for the LA Lakers could also come in handy.
He hasn't played much, but being around players like LeBron James and Anthony Davis in his last two seasons is something that would have helped him immensely. Quinn Cook is also a decent 3-point shooter, having converted 40.8% of his attempts from deep in his career so far.
