Cook back with Charge following NBA stint

Pelicans guard Quinn Cook is averaging 26.0 points in the D-League.

As expected, Quinn Cook has returned to the Canton Charge following his stop with the Dallas Mavericks.

Multiple outlets, including Amico Hoops, reported Wednesday the Mavs would not re-sign Cook to a second 10-day contract, and the Charge made it official via a press release Thursday.

Cook did a nice job running the point in his short stay with Dallas — a sentiment that was shared by team owner Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle.

However, the Mavericks are in sort of an experimentation mode, as they call up players from all across the D-League.

Cook’s 10-day contract expired with the Mavericks Tuesday night.

The reigning D-League Rookie of the Year and this season’s All-Star Game MVP, Cook is averaging 26 points with the Charge. He will be in uniform for Saturday’s home game vs. Austin.

After allowing Cook to return to Canton, the Mavs called up former Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers guard Manny Harris. Like Cook, Harris was inked to a 10-day deal.

The Mavs hinted that Cook could be recalled prior to the end of the season. He scored a career-high 10 points just before being let go by the Mavericks.

He is free to be called up by any NBA team at any time.
