Source: Mavs to let Cook’s deal expire

Quinn Cook had a nice run in his NBA debut with the Mavericks.

Point guard Quinn Cook is headed back to the Canton Charge following a strong 10-day stop with the Dallas Mavericks, multiple sources told Amico Hoops.

Cook, the reigning D-League Rookie of the Year, scored an NBA career-high 10 points in his final game with Mavericks.

“He proved he can play in this league,” one source said. “Now he just needs to find the right opportunity.”

Cook averaged 5.4 points and 2.4 assists in 15.4 minutes a night in five games with the Mavs. They are expected to sign former NBA and current D-League guard Manny Harris, as well as big man Jarrod Uthoff.

The Mavericks informed Cook and forward Ben Bentil they would not be re-signed following the expiration of their 10-day contracts Tuesday.

Cook, 23, was named D-League All-Star Game MVP and is second in the league in scoring at 26.1 points per game.

The Canton Repository reported Cook is expected to play in the Charge’s home game Saturday vs. Austin. The Repository was first with the news that Cook is headed back to Canton.
