Jack Cooley signed with Dinamo Sassari in Serie A on Friday.
Cooley played seven games for the Kings last year after not appearing in NBA action for two seasons. He's clearly not a household name in NBA circles and will try to resurrect that overseas.

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.

Jack Cooley played 16 minutes off the bench on Sunday and picked up three points to go with a career-high eight rebounds.
Cooley could be in line for some more work going forward with Kosta Koufos a DNP-CD and Skal Labissiere sustaining an ankle injury. The Kings only have two games next week, however, which puts a major damper on his potential outside of 30-team formats.

Jack Cooley was the first big off the bench for the Kings on Saturday, logging 18 minutes and producing seven points, seven rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Cooley could get a closer look down the stretch here so he's a name to know in deeper formats. He plays hard but it's unlikely to yield much fantasy value unless the Kings come out and say they'll be resting some of their other frontcourt regulars.

Skal Labissiere (hip) has been ruled out of Monday’s game.
No shockers here, as Labissiere was on the inactive list for yesterday’s game. It’ll leave minutes open in the frontcourt, especially if Zach Randolph sits. Kosta Koufos should have a great shot at continuing his double-double streak tonight while Justin Jackson, Jack Cooley, Garrett Temple and even JaKarr Sampson could get a little playing time bump. There’s nobody worth picking up in leagues of any depth beyond Koufos, and even then the upside is about as minimal as it gets.
