To add to this, just as a positional need Cook makes alot more sense than Bolden. The Cavs already have 4 guys that are centers on the roster. Nance building up his skills to play PF is no where close to a given. Even if Nance transitions to be a PF and we keep Love, another PF is still needed for depth. It just makes sense to fill both two way contracts with guys to develop Into modern PFs. It much easier to take one of your PFs like Nance or maybe even Cook and play them at center if needed than trying to take someone like Bolden and try to play him at PF.Cook looks like he has way more upside than Bolden to me. He's more athletic and quicker, also seems to be relatively skilled for a big, looks like he can handle the ball a little and make good decisions. If he can develop a jumper, he could be useful, obviously he's a long shot but seems like a better bet if you're just looking for a guy to develop. Bolden is kind of one dimensional, upside is basically a backup center at best. I was rooting for him to make the team, was kind of bummed he was cut. But, then I looked at Cook and it made a lot of sense, he looks better.
