Jahlil Okafor wants to play with Quinn Cook in the NBA

Duke stars Jahlil Okafor and Justise Winslow seem like locks to be lottery picks on June 25, when the 2015 NBA Draft rolls around. Point guard Tyus Jones has a great shot at being a first round pick. Senior guard Quinn Cook? He was vital to Duke’s success this season, but his NBA potential is a little less clear. Well, at least to those who didn’t play with him on the 2015 national championship team.

Basketball Insiders‘ Alex Kennedy wrote a great piece on Cook’s NBA prospects, and spoke to Okafor, who had nothing but praise for his former teammate.

 

Cook is ranked as the No. 55 prospect in the draft by Draft Express, but the site’s mock draft doesn’t have him being selected. While the other three Blue Devils all look like safe bets to be drafted, we imagine Duke fans would like nothing more than to see Cook land with a team. If that team winds up being Okafor’s? They’d probably sell a bunch of gear in North Carolina.
