The Detroit Pistons have reportedly signed 23-year-old center Tyler Cook to a 10-Day Contract, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Cook went undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft, after spending three years at thee University of Iowa. Cook has played a total of 71 NBA minutes, across three different teams: the Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets, and Brooklyn Nets.
Cook has most recently played for the OKC Blue in the NBA’s G-League, where he has been putting up impressive numbers, averaging: 20.8 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 4.4 assists in 33.3 minutes a night. At 6’8″ and 255 pounds, Cook fits the mold of big man that Troy Weaver likes, having similar builds to Jerami Grant and Isaiah Stewart.
With the Pistons in a full-blown rebuild, Cook could earn a chance at getting a second contract with Detroit.
