• Quinn Cook tries to book a permanent spot on the Cleveland Cavaliers roster
  • Cook may help guide young players like Collin Sexton and Darius Garland
  • The Cavaliers could still make it to the playoffs if they can string up wins

Quinn Cook is young and talented, someone who is eager to get a break.

He had his best years with the Golden State Warriors and played his role with the Los Angeles Lakers last year. After getting cut recently, the 27-year-old guard is getting a new lease with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

According to The Athletic, sources reveal that Cook will be signing a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers.

It will be a homecoming of sorts for the two-time NBA champion who started his playing career with the Cavs G-League affiliate Canton Charge. He went undrafted in 2015.

Cook is expected to beef up the backcourt with Matthew Dellavedova still out of action. With the experience that the 6-foot-1 point guard has had playing on two NBA championship teams, head coach J.B. Bickerstaff will try to figure out if he can be influential on his young stalwarts.

Collin Sexton and Darius Garland are holding up the fort for the Cavs for now. But as most know, both are still young budding stars that need direction.

Dellavedova is helping out, but having someone on the floor alongside them could be better.

Cook can be of help. Aside from being part of two NBA championships, the native of Washington D.C. has proven he can be reliable if given the chance.

In fact with the Lakers last season, Cook appeared in 44 games averaging 11.5 minutes and contributed 5.1 points per game. Those may not be impressive numbers, but the former Duke standout could do more if he gets more playing time with the Cavs.

Cook and the Cleveland Cavaliers have nothing to lose in this experimental trial. The Cavs are 14-22 and three games behind the eight-place Toronto Raptors.

There is still time to save the season, but Bickerstaff and company need to get their act together.

The current NBA season was not exactly memorable for Cook with the Lakers. He played in only 16 games, averaging 2.1 points in only 3.9 minutes of action.

He had his best year during the 2017-18 season as a member of the Warriors, but his production declined from there. Now, it will be up to him to work on a longer contract and the 10-day deal should not be wasted.
