After not receiving a qualifying offer on his two-way contract from Sacramento, Jack Cooley will play in the Las Vegas Summer League with the Phoenix Suns next week.
Cooley played in only seven games for Sacramento in which he averaged 5.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 12.4 minutes. With the Kings already having Willie Cauley-Stein, Kosta Koufos and Zach Randolph on top of drafting Marvin Bagley there isn't much room left for Cooley. Unfortunately, he might've ended up going to a team even more loaded with big men than the Kings. The Suns just used the first overall pick on Deandre Ayton along with already having Tyson Chandler, Alan Williams, Marquese Chriss, and Dragan Bender. Things aren't shaping up to be very good for Cooley come next season and will likely be looking at another stint in the G-League.
