Utah Jazz: NBA veteran Brian Cook added to training camp roster
SALT LAKE CITY — If the latest camp roster addition ends up making the team, he'll certainly bring the youthful Utah Jazz's average age up.
NBA veteran Brian Cook will participate in the Jazz's training camp, which begins Monday with the annual Media Day session.
Cook didn't play in the NBA last season after being waived by the Wizards before the first game, but the 32-year-old has logged playing time in nine seasons dating back to 2003. The 6-foot-9 power forward from Illinois began his career with the Los Angeles Lakers and has also played for Orlando, Houston, the Clippers and Washington.
Cook played in Puerto Rico early this year after being cut by the Wizards last October.
Cook averaged 5.5 points and 2.6 rebounds in his nine-year career. He also shot 38.2 percent from 3-point land.
The Jazz announced earlier this week that they will also bring free-agent veterans Mike Harris, Scott Machado and Dominic McGuire into camp.
Utah has 13 players on roster with guaranteed contracts.
