According to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando, former NBA veteran guard Quinn Cook is suiting up for Guangsha to play in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA). Cook last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2020-21 NBA season and has since struggled to take a roster spot in the league. Cook actually was in contention for a spot in the Sacramento Kings roster this season, but he wasn’t able to perform well enough. He was waived before the season started, as the Kings opted to bring in another veteran guard in Matthew Dellavedova.

Quinn Cook, who will turn 30 next year, was undrafted during the 2015 NBA Draft. He still went on to test the waters in the NBA, first playing for the Canton Charge in the G League. Cook eventually garnered the attention of the NBA, as he was called up by the Dallas Mavericks in 2017. Cook only suited up for five games in Dallas, then moved to the New Orleans Pelicans that same season.

But Cook’s biggest break was the opportunity to play for the Golden State Warriors. He was a key cog in the Warriors’ successful championship chase in 2018, establishing himself as a smart guard who can space the floor on offense and also play good defense on the other end of the floor. The Los Angeles Lakers then signed him in the summer of 2019, and Cook again tasted success when the Lakeshow defeated the Miami Heat in the 2020 NBA Finals.

Cook has career averages of 6.4 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.6 assists.
