The Athletic's Shams Charania reported the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers have waived Quinn Cook.
The Los Angeles Lakers are waiving guard Quinn Cook, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Teams are expected to express interest in Cook, who has served as a reliable guard and locker room voice for two title teams in LA and Golden State.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) February 23, 2021
Cook, who was part of the Lakers squad last season, signed a non-guaranteed contract during the offseason. Still, he never was able to find minutes in the Frank Vogel's rotation.
The 27 year-old has played just 62 minutes in the 16 games that he’s appeared in this season. By waving him, the Lakers now have two open roster spots.
Cook has been part of two championship winning teams in Golden State and Los Angeles. The fifth year player is a career 40.7 percent 3-point shooter.
