Lakers to Waive Quinn Cook

Quinn Cook of the Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers will waive Quinn Cook, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Cook was set to earn $3 million in 2020-21 but only $1 million was guaranteed.

Cook will hit the free agency after winning a title with the Lakers in 2019-20. He averaged 5.1 points per game in 44 games with the club.

The 27-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent and, with a career three-point percentage of .407, shouldn’t have a difficult time finding a taker for his services heading forward.

The move gives the Lakers additional financial flexibility as they readjust their championship team around Anthony Davis’ forthcoming new max contract.
