Just before the 2018 playoffs started, Quinn Cook signed a "multi-year" deal with the Warriors.
Year 1 included the final game of the regular season (he made just under $15,000), plus the playoffs.
Year 2 is for the 2018-19 campaign, when he will make $1,544,951 guaranteed.
Cook could have chosen a route that would have made him a restricted free agent this summer, enabling him to test the market.
But he never seriously entertained that idea.
"I wanted to just be a part of the team. Didn't matter for how much money -- I didn't care," Cook said on the Warriors Outsiders Podcast earlier this week. "I wanted to be part of the team. They gave me a tremendous opportunity ... I didn't care.
"For them to give me a guaranteed contract..."
So it wasn't much of a negotiation?
"Exactly," Cook said. "I know the situation on the team. You have these guys who make a lot of money, so whatever I need to do to just be part of the team, I want to do. It was an easy decision for me."
Considering how little money was available this summer, it was a wise decision.
If the Warriors extend Cook his $1,931,189 qualifying offer next June, he will become a restricted free agent in July 2019.
In case you forgot -- over a 13-game stretch late last season, Cook averaged 17.8 points and 5.2 assists, while shooting over 51 percent from deep.
