Quinn Cook — Restricted

I have touched on the Bulls potentially looking at Quinn Cook in the past, and the more I think about it, the more I like him in the backup role. First off, what better guy to learn from and play behind than Stephen Curry?

Cook has spent a few seasons with a franchise that wins. He knows how to play winning basketball. He understands the demands of an established head coach like Steve Kerr, which comes from the same coaching tree as Jim Boylen.

No, I didn’t actually just compare Boylen and Kerr — relax.

As a young guard with plenty of big game experience, Cook would bring much more to the table than Dunn. He is a much better shooter, overall, than Dunn. That’s a big aspect of a player like Cook. Dunn has been far too inconsistent on the offensive end, and Cook is the kind of player who can come in off the bench and knock down a couple of shots from deep to ignite his team.

The Warriors are going to have decisions to make this offseason when it comes to several free agents. He, Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are all players that could end up in a different city next season. Obviously, Thompson and Durant could opt in and stay put. Or, they could opt out and come back on longer deals.

Cook very well could end up on the back burner when it’s all said and done, and thus he’d likely wind up on a new team.
