The Hawks added another young potential role player for the 2017-18 season. Atlanta agreed to terms on a two-year deal with second-year point guard Quinn Cook.
After the rookie guard from Duke University went un-drafted after the 2015 NBA Draft , Cook’s rookie season was split between the Dallas Mavericks and the New Orleans Pelicans where he averaged a combined (5.6) points per game in 14 games.
Cook finished his college career ranked 28th on Duke’s all-time scoring list with 1,571. Cook will be an interesting addition for the Hawks in training camp as a potential third point guard behind Dennis Schroder and Malcolm Delaney.
It remains to be seen if Cook will be a camp tryout situation or if the Hawks are actively looking for competition for Delaney as Cook’s deal is only partially guaranteed.
