2. Quinn Cook
Poor Quinn Cook. The guy was just brought back by the Los Angeles Lakers and now here I am talking about how his future with the team is not fully guaranteed. That is the business of basketball, though, and if anything the Lakers already proved that they are willing to move on from Cook.
Cook was cut by the Los Angeles Lakers as a means to shave some money on the salary cap but was recently brought back. The exact details of the contract are still unknown.
Cook is in the exact same situation as Troy Daniels was last season. Daniels had the potential to be a bench scorer for the team and his three-point shot was even getting hyped up during the preseason.
However, he ultimately failed to make the most of his time on the court and was eventually cut by the team. If Cook is not shooting lights out while he does get playing time then it is going to make it even easier for the Lakers to cut him.
Cook is going to be one of the first people to go if the Lakers want to sign someone on the buyout market. Having the point guard depth is absolutely nice but it is something they can do without, especially if they are adding someone to the rotation that is going to get more minutes.
