In fact, Cook won championship rings with both of those teams, one in 2017 and one in 2020.
But he hasn’t been a part of any team in some time and last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers before playing in Russia and with G League team the Stockton Kings.
Now Cook is ready for his big NBA comeback.
God willing I get a NBA call up this season it will be the proudest moment in my career thus far. I will cherish it like a any championship I’ve won because a couple months ago I was at rock bottom. I was at my lowest I’ve been in my life but God got me through it. Never quit! 🙏🏽

The former Duke star tweeted his intent on Sunday night, saying, “God willing I get a NBA call up this season.”
He added, “I will cherish it like any championship I’ve won because a couple of months ago I was at rock bottom.”
Will Cook’s plea fall on deaf ears or is a return to the NBA in the cards for Cook?
A Second Chance
During his time in the NBA, Cook has averaged 6.4 points through five seasons.
And during the height of his career with the Warriors, Cook was putting up 7.7 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1.9 assists a game.
He last played nearly a year ago, when he participated for 14 minutes with the Cavaliers, scoring nine points.
There was a chance that Cook could return to the Warriors: he worked out with the team in September.
But Golden State eventually passed on re-signing the 29-year-old.
Cook is a young man with a lot of spirit and enthusiasm and, importantly, experience too.
He might not be the sort of star that will start games but he could be a reliable and important bench player.
Additionally, he still has a lot of fans within the league so he would be welcomed by multiple teams.
