Lakers news: Guard Quinn Cook to be waived after nearly two seasons
The Los Angeles Lakers are in a bit of trouble and a lot more trouble than they have been used to since trading with Anthony Davis in the summer of 2019. As a result, the Lakers are taking some roster steps to address some of the issues they have seen lately as they prepare for at least a month without AD.
Quinn Cook, one of the holdover from the 2020 NBA championship team, is being picked up by the Lakers, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania. Cook, whose calling card is a career mark 40% off the 3-point line, has played frugally for the Lakers this season. Cook was with the Lakers all of last season and was picked up in the off-season only to be re-signed by the Lakers at training camp.
The Los Angeles Lakers are foregoing Quinn Cook guard, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Teams are expected to show an interest in Cook, who has acted as the trusted voice for guards and locker rooms for two title teams in LA and Golden State.

Anthony Davis's absence was compounded by the absence of Dennis Schröder, who is currently in a seven-day quarantine. Whether in the middle or in the background, the Lakers and LeBron James need extra help with gaming that Cook didn't give them.
