Report: Warriors agree to terms with Cook on two-way contract

The Warriors added a player to the mix on Tuesday morning.

Golden State agreed to terms with Quinn Cook on a two-way contract, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

Cook -- a 6'2" guard -- went undrafted in 2015 after four years at Duke.

He spent training training camp and the preseason with the Hawks, but was waived late last week.

Last year, he appeared in 14 NBA games -- five with the Mavericks and nine with the Pelicans -- and averaged 5.6 points and 1.9 assists while shooting over 42 percent from deep.

In 39 games for the Canton Charge (the Cleveland Cavaliers' affiliate), Cook averaged 26 points and 6.7 assists per contest.

He was named MVP of the G League All-Star Game.

In 2015-16, he averaged 19.6 points and 5.4 assists for the Charge and was named G League Rookie of the Year. 

What is a two-way contract? Glad you asked:

NBA teams may have up to two players under NBA Two-Way Contracts who will spend the bulk of the season in the NBA G League and not more than 45 days with their NBA team.

Two-Way players are paid a corresponding daily amount based on the number of days they play in each league. Only players with four or fewer years of NBA service are able to sign Two-Way Contracts, which can be for either one or two seasons.

Chris Boucher agreed to terms on a two-way deal with the Warriors back in late June.

The Santa Cruz Warriors open their season on Friday, Nov. 3.

Klay Thompson makes his triumphant return to China

Klay Thompson makes his triumphant return to China

The sequel is rarely as good as its predecessor, but convention goes out the window when China Klay is involved.

That's right, Klay Thompson is back in China this summer. He made his first stop in Beijing on Saturday, and will spend the next seven days in the country. Here's his itinerary:

June 23 -- Beijing
June 25 -- Jinan
June 26 -- Zhengzhou
June 27 -- Taiyuan
June 28 -- Guiyang
June 30 -- Guangzhou

How many shots will he air ball? Will he only eat smoky foods? Two countries await those answers with baited breath. 

During the draft, the Warriors tried to trade up to select Jacob Evans

During the draft, the Warriors tried to trade up to select Jacob Evans

With the 28th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, the Warriors selected Jacob Evans.

"When our pick was up, it was clear it was him," Bob Myers told reporters on Thursday night. "There was no debate as far as who we were taking. When it got to us, he was the guy without hesitation."

You could say that the Warriors are lucky to have ended up with Evans.

The front office nearly executed a trade to ensure they got the Cincinnati product.

"We had a number of guys who we were really interested in, but I think as the draft started to continue to go on, it became pretty apparent to us that a bunch of the other guys that we liked were not going to be there," assistant GM Kirk Lacob said on 95.7 The Game on Friday morning. "We actually at one point tried to trade up to get Jacob -- we were getting a little worried that he wasn't gonna get there -- but we were really happy that he ended up with us."

Golden State also tried to buy a pick early in the second round, but couldn't strike a deal.
