The loss of Jermaine Anderson stings… bad. But now the team needs to find a quality PG out there somewhere willing to play minor league ball for minor league money. Normally this would be an impossible task in February, but Halifax may have lucked out.
Former ABA All-Star and starting PG for the Vermont Frostheaves, Aaron Cook recently left the Butte Daredevils of the CBA. He officially left due to fatigue, but from what I’ve been able to gather the real reason he left was because the Daredevils were unable to pay him. This seems like the perfect opportunity for the Rainmen,
Aaron Cook is a deadly 3 point shooter (won the ABA 3 Point shoot out last year, was runner up in the CBA 3 point shoot out this year), has been an all-star in the CBA and the ABA, won a championship with Vermont (playoff experience, plus knowledge of a team we need to learn to beat), and is an excellent passer. He played Division I ball at Hartford where he put up some pretty damn good stats in his senior year: 16.4ppg, 2.5 apg, 4.2rpg, 1.6spg. Numbers very similar to Anderson’s college stats. He’s pretty much the ideal replacement.
