Hawks signing Cook to two-year contract

Quinn Cook has landed with the Hawks after signing his third NBA deal in less than eight months.

Free agent point guard and former G-League Rookie of the Year Quinn Cook has agreed to a two-year contract with the Atlanta Hawks, Cook’s agent told The Vertical.

According to the report, the deal is partially guaranteed.

Cook, 23, debuted in the NBA last season, appearing in 14 games — nine with the New Orleans Pelicans, and five with the Dallas Mavericks. He has compiled NBA averages of 5.6 points and 1.9 assists per game.

Fifth-year man Dennis Schroder was the lone true point guard on the Hawks’ roster prior to the Cook signing. The Hawks are expected to invite at least one more point guard to training camp next month.

Along with gaining G-League rookie honors with the Canton Charge in 2016, Cook was named to the All-Defensive first team in 2016 and ’17, and won the G-League All-Star Game MVP.

He went undrafted in 2015 after winning a national championship with Duke, then attended training camp with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

  1. We most likely will find out this year if Cook is a viable NBA player or not. Sorry it didn’t work out for him in Cleveland.
