Thunder give Cook qualifying offer
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)
After Monday's move, the Thunder will now have the chance to match any contract offers Cook receives from other teams.
Cook joined Oklahoma City in a trade last year with the Miami Heat, then earned a role in the Thunder's rotation midway through the season.
Cook didn't play in 34 straight games early in the season, then averaged 6.4 points and shot 45 percent from 3-point range after getting into the rotation.
Cook said last week that he loves it in Oklahoma City and feels ''pretty good'' about having the chance to return for a second season.
