Veteran free agent Daequan Cook has signed with Budivelnyk Kyiv in Ukraine.

He played with the Rockets and Bulls last year, averaging 2.5 points in what could well have been his final NBA season. He shot 36.9 percent from the field in 328 regular season games.

Daequan Cook is not expected to return to the Bulls next season.

It's hardly a surprise. Cook was largely glued to the bench since he signed with the Bulls and was never going to be there beyond this season. Cook joins Nate Robinson, Richard Hamilton and Marco Belinelli as Bulls players who aren't expected to return next year. Chicago will have to remake its bench again for the second straight offseason.

Daequan Cook (bruised thigh) was able to play vs. Minnesota on Sunday, notching two points in 15 reserve minutes.

Cook doesn't play nearly enough to have fantasy relevance, at least not while Kirk Hinrich and Nate Robinson are both healthy. Almost 60 percent of his shots this season have been 3-pointers, which pretty well sums up his role in Chicago's offense.

Daequan Cook did not return to Saturday's game after bruising his left thigh.

Cook's absence has no practical implication in fantasy leagues, though he did finish tonight's game with a surprising nine points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes. Marquis Teague went scoreless in eight minutes and Nate Robinson had nine points and five rebounds in 20 minutes, but both guys will see a few extra minutes if Cook misses any games.

Daequan Cook scored a season-high 19 points with four 3-pointers against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He got the bulk of Marco Belinelli's minutes in the loss and he could be in line for more time as long as Bello is out. However, Bello's ankle injury isn't serious and we'd leave Cook on the wire even in the deepest of leagues.

Bulls signed G/F Daequan Cook.

Cook and his $3.1 million salary cleared waivers at 5 p.m. ET on Friday after the Rockets dumped him Tuesday. The Bulls have scooped him up as a situational 3-point specialist.

Rockets waived G/F Daequan Cook.

Cook was released to make room for newly-signed James Anderson. He could latch on with another NBA team but he has no fantasy relevance.

Daequan Cook scored eight points on 3-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds and one steal in 11 minutes off the bench on Friday.

We never updated Cook after his big game two Wednesdays back, and as you can see he hasn't made much noise since then.

Daequan Cook started in place of Chandler Parsons on Wednesday and had his best game in a long time, finishing with 18 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers on 7-of-17 shooting in 38 minutes.

This was tough to see coming and he had scored a total of 24 points on the season coming into this one. We didn't even know he could play small forward and he was helped by the fact Carlos Delfino is out with a groin injury. Unless Parsons' injury turns out to be serious, it's hard to imagine Cook being worth a pick up in any fantasy leagues.

Daequan Cook will get the start in place of the injured Chandler Parsons (right shoulder) against the Thunder on Wednesday.

James Harden will likely have to slide over to the three and have the unenviable task of guarding Kevin Durant. The Rockets will have to collectively fill the massive void left by Parsons being out. Cook is not a fantasy option while Marcus Morris figures to play more tonight.

The Rockets acquired Daequan Cook as part of their trade for James Harden.

Cook will earn $3.1 million in the final year of his contract this season, so he should be motivated to prove his worth. He brings feisty defense and adequate 3-point shooting to the Rockets' bench, but little else.
Sat, Oct 27, 2012 11:50:00 PM

Daequan Cook (knee) admitted that he's not 100 percent healthy.

Cook's role in the rotation has been inconsistent of late, but he got hot on Tuesday and scored 19 points with four treys. He admitted that he's "not fully healed," nor did he give a percentage as to how strong his knee was. Regardless, he's playing through it and should continue to do so moving forward.

Daequan Cook played just 21 minutes, but hit four 3-pointers on his way to 19 points, five rebounds and an assist on 6-of-11 shooting in Tuesday's win.

Cook and Derek Fisher saw more run tonight with James Harden out with a concussion, and both guys might be worth a look for Wednesday's finale against Denver, as Harden's not expected to play in that one, either.
Tue, Apr 24, 2012 11:37:00 PM

Daequan Cook scored 13 points off the bench on Friday against the Kings, hitting 4-of-11 shots (including three treys) with three rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes.

Keeping in mind the Kings' defense was awful tonight, Cook was the clear winner between he and Thabo Sefolosha (three points, four boards, 23 minutes) tonight. James Harden (knee) is day-to-day.
