The Athletic's Shams Charania reported the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers have waived Quinn Cook.

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.
