NBA Comparison: Shammond Williams

Strengths: Really developed into one of the more reliable three point shooters for Duke this past season ... Great floor general and leader both on and off the court ... Has the ability to play both guard spots although his size suggests he is a more ideal fit for the PG position ... Team first guy as he showed when he allowed freshman Tyus Jones to come in and run the point while he slide to the off guard spot ... Great transition player. Above average ball handling skills and a player with a high basketball IQ ... Doesn't turn the ball over at a high rate for a guy with the ball in his hands a lot (1.4 TO's per game during Junior and Senior seasons) ... A tough player with great intensity ... Great free throw shooter at just a tick below 90% during his senior season ... Four year player that knows how to run and team and an offense ...

Weaknesses: Not a great athlete and doesn't have great size or length ... At 6'1 he's got good enough height for the next level but his length and lack of hops really hurts him as he tested out on the bottom half in almost every statistical category for point guards ... While it helped his team, his move from the point to the off guard position hurt him last year as he projects as a point in the NBA ... Not a great play maker and struggles to get to the rim against bigger, longer guards ... Does most of his damage from outside of the arc which has caused some to think that he's a one dimensional player on offense ... Not a great one on one defender although he does play the passing lanes well.

Overall: Duke's National Title run did nothing but improve Cook's chances at being drafted ... Scouts love his ability to run a team and an offense ... He is a leader through and through and is a type of player that every coach would love to have coming off of their bench ... He won't "wow" you with any single part of his game but when you watch him play you can automatically see his positive influence on his teammates as well as on the game ... Getting serious looks in the second round and is a player that could really carve out a role for himself as a team's backup PG if he can continue improving his three point shot and show that he can be a capable defender at the next level ...
