Sam Presti Statement On Daequan Cook

by Darnell Mayberry Published: December 10, 2011

The Thunder announced the signing of Daequan Cook late last night, and in the release was this statement from Thunder general manager Sam Presti. The last bit pretty much sums up why this deal got done.

We are excited that we were able to reach an agreement that will keep Daequan a part of our core group moving forward,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. “Daequan’s commitment to his own development and willingness to accept a role within our team, makes him a valuable member of our organization. At twenty-four years old, we believe Daequan’s best basketball is ahead of him. His desire to remain a part of the Thunder organization and the Oklahoma City community is what ultimately allowed us to reach this agreement.”
