Lakers’ LeBron James, Stephen Curry’s ex-teammate taking talents abroad

Lakers, LeBron James, Stephen Curry

Much like every other team in the league, both the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors worked out several aspirants before finally rounding out their respective rosters.

One former player that both teams looked into this summer was two-time NBA champion Quinn Cook. The 28-year-old, however, was unable to sign with any team during the offseason and has since decided to take his talents abroad.

According to a report published by Johnny Askounis of EuroHoops.net, Cook has agreed to a deal with Russian outfit Lokomotiv Kuban for the rest of the season. The details of Cook’s contract were not revealed but we’re guessing the offer was good enough for the 6-foot-1 point guard to head all the way to Eastern Europe.

Cook played a couple of years alongside LeBron James with the Lakers. He was part of LA’s 2020 title run where he played a relatively significant role off the bench.

Prior to his stint in Hollywood, Cook also suited up for the Warriors. He was Stephen Curry’s backup for two seasons, and he won his first career title with the Dubs in 2018.

Cook signed with the Portland Trail Blazers this summer as part of their preseason roster. Unfortunately, the former Duke standout did not do enough to earn a spot on coach Chauncey Billups’ final roster.

We wish Quin Cook all the best in his career in Europe. If it’s meant to be, then we might see him back in the NBA sometime in the future.
