G League’s Quinn Cook Off To Hot Start

Former Duke star and current Santa Cruz Warrior Quinn Cook has gotten off to a red hot start in the NBA G League this season.

 

The 6-2 guard poured in 30 points, with 7 assists and 5 rebounds in Santa Cruz’s 131-98 season opening win against the Agua Caliente Clippers on Nov. 3.

 

Then he exploded for 35 points with 7 rebounds and 6 dimes in a 138-135 loss to the South Bay Lakers the next day.

 

Cook signed a two-way contract with the Golden State Warriors last month.

 

“This is a signing where the needs of both the NBA franchise and the NBA G League roster are aligned, and I believe he will be in a position to thrive for both teams this season,” Santa Cruz GM Kent Lacob told the Santa Cruz Sentinel back in October.

 

Cook led the G League in scoring last season, averaging 26 points and 6.7 assists for the Canton Charge.

 

He was MVP of the 2017 NBA G League All-Star Game with 18 points, 12 assists, and 7 rebounds, leading the East to a 105-100 victory; and he was the 2016 G League Rookie of the Year.

 

Cook also played with the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans last season, averaging 5.6 points and 1.9 assists in 13.4 minutes over 14 NBA games.

 

A college star at Duke, Cook averaged 15.3 points and 2.6 assists for the 2015 NCAA champion Blue Devils.

 

He also graduated as one of just seven players in Duke history to record 1,000 career points and 500 assists.

 

In high school, Cook averaged 21 points, 10.9 assists, and 2.2 steals as a senior for basketball power Oak Hill Academy, leading the team to a 31-4 record and the No. 4 USA Today national ranking.
