So long, Paul Millsap.
Now wearing No. 4 for the Hawks … Quinn Cook.
The Hawks announced the signing of the free-agent point guard Wednesday. According to the team, Cook will wear the uniform number donned by Millsap during his four all-star seasons with the Hawks. Millsap signed with the Nuggets as a free agent this summer after the Hawks did not make him a contract offer.
Cook, from Duke, split time last season as a rookie with the Mavericks and Pelicans. In a total of nine games, he averaged 5.6 points and 1.9 assists in 13.4 minutes. Cook appeared in 82 games for the Canton Charge of the NBA G League from 2015-17. The 6-foot-2 point was a two-time G League all-star and was Rookie of the Year in 2016 and first-team All-G League in 2017. He signed a two-year partially guaranteed contract.
Cook wore No. 2 with the Mavericks and No. 22 with the Pelicans. He wore No. 2 at Duke. Hawks second-round draft pick Tyler Dorsey has No. 2.
The Hawks also announced the signings of guard Josh Magette to a two-way contract and forward Tyler Cavanaugh to a partially guaranteed contract.
Millsap signed with the Hawks as a free agent in 2013. He made the Eastern Conference All-Star team all four seasons with the Hawks as a reserve. Last season, he led the Hawks in scoring and was second in rebounds, assists, blocks and steals.
