Quinn Cook assigned to the G-League

After a short stint with Golden State, the two-way point guard is headed back to Santa Cruz

At some point, it seems likely that we may see some extended minutes for point guard Quinn Cook. Cook is on a two-way contract, and has been tearing up the G-League with the Santa Cruz Warriors.

He's also had a few cups of coffee with the Golden State Warriors when the team has been short-handed, including on Monday, when Stephen Curry missed the game due to a hand injury. However, he hasn't seen many meaningful minutes yet.

Not surprisingly, Cook is headed back to Santa Cruz after being active against Sacramento.

Being in Santa Cruz means Cook will once again get extended playing time, and a chance to further develop his game. More importantly, it means the team is likely expecting Curry to play against the Los Angeles Lakers as the Dubs begin a six-game road trip.

With Cook back to the G-League, Golden State is back down to two point guards: Curry, and veteran Shaun Livingston. But with the comfort that Patrick McCaw, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala have with the ball in their hands, this isn't much of an issue.
