Cook update

The Lakers were unable to agree to a contract extension Tuesday with forward Brian Cook, who will become a restricted free agent at season’s end. Cook’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, said the two sides weren’t “light years apart” on a deal but weren’t going to come to an agreement.

“What made sense for us didn’t make sense for them,” Bartelstein said, “and what made sense for them didn’t make sense for us.”

The Lakers will retain the right to match any offer Cook receives next summer.
