Sacramento Kings Sign Veteran Guard Quinn Cook, Reports Say
Quinn Cook is moving from Stockton to Sacramento.
According to Yahoo Sports’ Marc Spears, Quinn Cook has agreed to a one-year deal with the Sacramento Kings. Cook played for the Kings’ G League team, the Stockton Kings, last season.
Cook is expected to battle Matthew Dellavedova for the team’s third point guard spot. NBA teams can carry up to 20 players on rosters during the offseason. The Kings currently sit at 17.
For his career, Cook has averaged 6.4 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.6 assists. Cook last played in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavs during the 2020-21 season.

The signing of Cook is the latest move in a busy offseason for the Sacramento Kings. After drafting Keegan Murray with the number four pick in the 2022 NBA Draft, the team kicked off free agency by signing Malik Monk. The Kings then traded Maurice Harkless, Justin Holiday, and a protected draft pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Kevin Huerter. Over the weekend, the team signed Kent Bazemore, bringing the veteran forward back to Sacramento.
All three recent signings — Cook, Bazemore and Dellavedova — have ties to new coach Mike Brown. Cook has won two NBA Championships, one with Coach Brown and the Golden State Warriors in 2018 and the other with the 2020 Los Angeles Lakers.
