Cacok spent his tenure with the Lakers on a two-way deal as an undrafted free agent out of UNC Wilmington. He dominated with the South Bay Lakers as a rookie finishing third in the G-League Rookie of the Year voting while being voted to the All NBA-G League first and All-Rookie teams. Cacok averages of 19.4 points, 11.9 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 0.4 blocks allowed him to be with the parent team in the bubble when they won a championship in his first season.
During the 2020-21 campaign with the Lakers, he only averaged 2.0 points and 1.6 rebounds in limited action in 20 games. Cacok can provide the Nets with some frontcourt depth if he has a breakout performance at training camp.
