A reliable ballhandler. A quality spot-up shooter. A revered teammate. Yes, to the shock of seemingly all fans other than those of the Duke basketball variety, Quinn Cook has carved out a career in the NBA and has picked up a championship ring along the way.

However, as was the case during his two seasons with the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Lakers point guard is just a backup option and doesn’t always play when his new juggernaut team is at full strength. All in all, though, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Washington, D.C., native is a 26-year-old character guy who, despite going undrafted out of Duke, looks to remain in the NBA at least another couple of years.
