Quinn Cook has made the most of his chance with the Golden State Warriors this season. Signed to a two-way contract in October, Cook split time in Santa Cruz with the G-League Warriors and the Dubs in Oakland.-old played in 33 games for the Warriors, averaging 9.5 points per game and starting in 17 in the regular season.
He had the most points of any two-way player in the NBA this season, a 30-point outing against the Bucks on March 29. Cook has been great for the Warriors, especially when Stephen Curry has recovered from a number of injuries this season. Earlier in the month, the Warriors officially signed him to a multi-year contract to lock him up for the postseason.
And a documentary about his rise shows just how hard he’s worked to make it full-time in the NBA. Quinn Cook: Road Warrior covers the season that was for Cook and the journey he took to the starting lineup in the NBA.
“It’s not about the money for me, it’s the dream,” Cook says in the film. “The journey that I’ve been on has helped me appreciate it more. And I know that my gift is going to inspire the next guy.”
Curry is likely coming back for the Warriors, which means Cook will be on the bench a lot more. But he’s proven that dream true this year, and that’s certainly something worth celebrating.
