The Los Angeles Lakers' free-agency holding pattern officially is over.
After word broke that Kawhi Leonard would be signing with the Clippers -- who also traded for Paul George -- the Lakers sprung into action to try and fill out the rest of their roster around LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
With a gaping hole at point guard, the Lakers agreed to a two-year deal with former Warriors point guard Quinn Cook on Saturday, Yahoo! Sports' Chris Haynes reported, citing league sources.

Cook was a solid member of the Warriors' bench over the past two seasons. The Duke product averaged 6.9 points per game last season in Golden State, and is a career 41.8 percent 3-point shooter, helping the Lakers fill a massive hole in their roster.
The Warriors had extended a qualifying offer to Cook before free agency began, but they rescinded it after the flurry of moves left them without a place for Cook on their roster.
Cook wasn't the only former Warrior to join James and Davis, as center JaVale McGee reportedly agreed to return to LA on a two-year contract, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reported Friday, citing sources.

With Leonard set to be a Clipper in lieu of creating a superteam with James and Davis, the Lakers reportedly also agreed to contracts with Danny Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne.

Leonard's decision to choose the Clippers over the Lakers has left the NBA -- and Western Conference in particular -- wide open.
The Warriors, who will play at least the first half of next season without Klay Thompson (torn ACL) now will have a puncher's chance to defend their Western Conference title with no dominant superteam standing in the way.
Cook was a key contributor to the Warriors' championship run last season, and he hit some massive shots for them in their NBA Finals loss to Leonard and the Raptors.
He'll now look to do the same for the Lakers.
