The Washington Wizards have signed veteran forward Brian Cook to a non-guaranteed contract, according to Michael Lee of The Washington Post. Cook was acquired by the Wizards in the trade that sent Nick Young to the Clippers. He played in 16 games, averaging less than 10 minutes per contest. For his career, he averages 5.5 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. Cook and the Wizards have been in continual contact with training camp just two weeks away. He had also apparently received some interest from the Suns.
The addition of Cook pushes the roster to 18. The Wizards also gave point guard Steven Gray, center Earl Barron, and forward Shavlik Randolph non-guaranteed deals earlier in September. Washington has an open 15th spot on the roster heading into training camp, which opens at George Mason on October 2.
