Quinn Cook has impressed with the Golden State Warriors. He's been playing important minutes with Steph Curry out.

Last Thursday, he exploded for 30 points in the team's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. It is one of four games in which he has scored at least 20 points for the Warriors.

Cook is currently riding an 11-game streak of double-digit points. He's definitely earned his place since being called up by the team.

Now, he'll likely be with the club as it attempts to win a third NBA title in four years. According to Yahoo! Sports NBA insider Shams Charania, Cook and the Warriors are working on a new contract.

Quinn Cook's numbers over the last few weeks are incredibly impressive.

During that 11 game streak, he's playing over 34 minutes per game. Cook has 29 total appearances on the year, with 14 starts.

He's averaging 18 points a game in that 11 game stretch. On the season, Cook is just a bit shy of the fabled 50/40/90 club, shooting .493 from the field, .429 from three, and .905 from the free throw line.

On the season, the Duke product is averaging 8.9 points per game. He played sparingly for the Warriors earlier in the season, before Steph's most recent injury has him sidelined likely through the first round of the NBA playoffs.

Quinn Cook went undrafted in 2015, after a strong four-year career for the Blue Devils. He was named D-League rookie of the year in 2016, playing for the Canton Charge. In 2016-17, he made appearances for the New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks, before catching on with the Warriors this season.
