Cook, Lakers agree on two-year deal

DeMarcus Cousins Spurs

Free agent guard Quinn Cook has reached an agreement with the Los Angeles Lakers on a two-year, $6 million deal, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. But he only played in 46 games due to injuries, including a hand that he broke twice during the season.

Most notable was his performance against the Los Angeles Clippers when he dropped a career-high 32 points and 10 rebounds including 13 of the team's final 17 points in the fourth quarter to clinch the game.

Cousins becomes the latest free agent to join LeBron James and Anthony Davis in Los Angeles after the Lakers missed out on top free agent Kawhi Leonard, who signed with the Clippers on Friday night.

The Lakers depth chart is looking something like this, for now: Point Guards: Rajon Rondo - Quinn Cook.

The Lakers also moved early Saturday to re-sign Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and JaVale McGee, ESPN reported.

Before joining the Warriors for the 2017-18 season, with whom he won an National Basketball Association championship ring, Cook appeared in 14 combined games for the Dallas Mavericks (5 games) and the New Orleans Pelicans (9 games) in the 2016-17 season. Rondo was a key member of the Lakers last season, especially as a leader among the team. In addition to Cook, the Lakers also locked up Danny Green to a 2-year $30-million contract.

Cook, on the other hand, will sign a two-year, $6 million deal after he spent two seasons with the Warriors.
