Cook last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2020-21 season. He averaged 2.1 points across 16 appearances with the Lakers and 6.1 points in just seven appearances with the Cavaliers.
Cook has been used mostly in a reserve role during his five years in the league, starting in just 29 of his 188 career games played. Prior to joining the NBA, he won a national championship while at Duke. He has also won two NBA Championships, one with the Golden State Warriors and another with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Blazers currently have 13 players with a guaranteed contract for the 2021-22 season, which does not include the non-guaranteed Cook, as well as the training camp contracts of Patrick Patterson, Dennis Smith Jr., and Marquese Chriss. Those four players will compete for Portland’s final roster spots heading into the next season.
