The 2015 NCAA champion is joining the reigning NBA champs.
Former Duke star Quinn Cook is getting another opportunity in the NBA, and it seems to be a pretty good one.
According to The Vertical’s Shams Charania, Cook is signing a two-way contract with the Golden State Warriors.

Because of the way the two-way contract is structured, Cook will spend most of his time in the G-League. He can only spend 45 of the 170 days of the NBA season on the Warriors’ roster.
Players under a two-way contract aren’t counted against the salary cap, and will be restricted free agents after their deal expires. A two-way contract can only be up to two years, and no bonuses, extra compensation or options for future years can be included. The NBA season is split into 170 days, and a player on a two-way deal can only spend 45 days with their NBA team receiving the minimum salary, which is set at $815,615 for the 2017-18 season. The rest of the 125 days, the player will be payed at the rate of their G League salary capped at $75,000. In a best case scenario, the salary math works out to roughly around $280,000.
Cook previously played with the Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans, averaging 5.6 points and 1.9 assists per game in 14 total appearances.
