He shot 52.7 percent from the field, 43.9 percent from three-point range (6th in G League) and 94.9 percent from the free-throw line (1st in G League), becoming the first player in G League history to post a 50/40/90 season. Cook scored 20-or-more points 23 times, including 30-or-more points nine times and 40-plus points three times. He was named to the Midseason All-NBA G League Western Conference Team.
During the 2016-17 NBA season, he played in five games with Dallas and nine games with New Orleans, averaging 5.6 points and 1.9 assists in 13.4 minutes per contest. After a four-year career at Duke, the undrafted guard spent the 2015-16 season and a majority of the 2016-17 campaign with the Canton Charge of the G League, averaging 22.6 points, 6.0 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 1.16 steals and 36.0 minutes in 82 games (75 starts).
