Cook's scoring averages and time on the floor decreased in his second season as a Warrior. He went from 9.5 points per game to 6.9, and 22.4 minutes per game to 14.3. The former Duke Blue Devil also saw his 3-point shooting fall from 44.2 percent to 40.5.
The undersized guard is still a solid shooter and should receive interest around the league if the Warriors have decided to completely move on.
Cook, one of Kevin Durant's closest friends, signed a two-year deal with the Warriors in April of 2018. In two seasons as a Warrior, he averaged 7.7 points per game while making 41.8 percent of his 3-pointers.
