Golden State Warriors considering Quinn Cook for final roster spot

The Golden State Warriors have been diligent in surveying the remaining pool of free agents to fill their final spot on the roster. Various veteran guards have met with the team to showcase their worth and it seems Quinn Cook is next on their list.

Recently, players such as Isaiah Thomas, Darren Collison and Ryan Arcidiacono secured training sessions with the Dubs. Whether or not they did enough to impress Golden State is unclear as the franchise continues to scan the market for a suitable asset.

However, none of these targets have the familiarity of Cook — who played with the Warriors just a few years ago. Cook competed with the Dubs in their 2018 NBA championship run and played a role in the 2019 NBA Finals as injuries decimated the roster. Though, he was not particularly good, shooting below 40 percent form the field against Toronto.

Former member of the Golden State Warriors, Quinn Cook, is back on their radar as they look to fill their final roster spot before the season begins.

Still, bringing Cook back is the easiest way to get the wheels turning for this team. The Dubs have a plethora of new faces and having a guy who is already comfortable with his role will make things that much easier.

Cook has not only acted as a backup guard in the Dubs’ championship but he also battled in the Orlando Bubble during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 2020 title. His experience is something the Dubs should value.

Furthermore, he is as talented as anyone left on the market in terms of handling the ball and shooting 3-pointers. He’s always been a streaky shooter who can punish opponents and he’s a speedy guard with respectable playmaking ability.

His defense will always be a concern. But, the Warriors simply need a capable distributor to provide enough of a buffer for Stephen Curry to get some much-needed rest throughout games. So long as Cook can hold his own, he’d benefit the Warriors.

Cook is not going to move the needle too much for Golden State but he seems to be one of the best options remaining.
