Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Wizards waive Brian Cook.

Cook was brought into training camp on a make-good contract, but there was too much competition for the veteran forward. He may have a hard time finding a deal in the NBA, since the Wizards were the only team interested in him this summer.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

The Wizards and Brian Cook have agreed to a non-guaranteed deal, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

Cook is the 18th player on the roster and the Wizards are as deep as they've been in quite some time. While he has some nice range for a 6'9" forward, Cook will turn 32 this year and is off the fantasy radar. It's just a training camp invite for the veteran.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Brian Cook has received a training camp invite from the Wizards, two sources tell the Washington Post.

Cook has received no interest on the open market, and the Wizards "hope to hear back from Cook by next week." He will have no fantasy value.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Brian Cook is not looking to be bought out of his contract.

Agent Mark Bartelstein said Cook has no plans to pursue a buyout by Friday's deadline and said Cook likes being on the Wizards. There was some chatter that Cook would be bought out, but he'll likely stick with the Wizards for the remainder of the season.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Brian Cook made his Wizards debut on Sunday, scoring three points and committing three personal fouls in eight minutes.

Cook made 1-of-4 shots with all of his attempts coming from downtown, and he's not a fantasy asset unless you need 3-pointers in a very deep league. The Wizards were expected to buy out his contract, but it's possible they've changed course.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

The Wizards could soon buy out Brian Cook's contract, according to his agent.

Washington is turning over their roster with an eye toward the future, and Cook doesn't fit into their long-term plans, so it makes sense for both sides.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

The Wizards acquired Brian Cook as part of a three-team trade Thursday.

Cook has appeared in just 16 games all year, mostly seeing garbage time. The 6'9/250 shooter will be a deep reserve in Washington as well.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Brian Cook (ankle) did not play on Friday against the Wolves and we're calling him day-to-day.

There's no need for daily updates on Cook, as his impact on the rotation is minimal.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Brian Cook (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Jazz.

Brian Cook - F/C - Jazz

Clippers forward Brian Cook will soon have a precautionary MRI on his ankle after an X-ray revealed bone spurs.

Beat writer Eric Pincus notes that the bone spurs may have been in Cook's ankle for a while. He only had the X-ray in the first place because he tweaked his ankle during Saturday's game and it's possible the bone spurs can just be left alone.
