Tyler Cook Rumors
Mike Singer: #Nuggets expected to sign Summer League standout Tyler Cook to two-way deal, per league source. Team has track record of converting two-way deals to standard contracts. It’s possible he ultimately competes for 15th spot on roster.
Chris Emens of Octagon, the sports-management agency representing Cook, said via email that Cook “suffered a high ankle sprain in a workout with the Detroit Pistons, so unfortunately he will be unable to play Summer League.”
The NBA has picked 11 players from the G League Elite Camp to stay for the NBA draft combine that starts Thursday. UCF’s Tacko Fall, Florida State’s Terance Mann, Miami’s Dewan Hernandez, Syracuse’s Oshae Brissett, Nevada’s Cody Martin, Tulsa’s DaQuan Jeffries, Auburn’s Jared Harper, Iowa’s Tyler Cook, Iowa State’s Marial Shayok, Mississippi State’s Reggie Perry and Ole Miss’ Terence Davis were invited Wednesday to stay.
