Number 2: Daequan Cook
The OKC Thunder faithful also rallied around Daequan Cook during his time in Bricktown for similar reasons to the aforementioned Dion Waiters, his shooting ability. Cook played two seasons for the OKC Thunder. He totaled 100 games for the franchise and made 22 starts, all coming during the 2011-12 season.
In his career with the Thunder, Daequan Cook posted five points, two rebounds, half an assist, and 0.5 STOCKS per game while shooting a career-best for a single franchise, 37 percent from beyond the arc on three attempts per night.
However, during the 2011-12 season, Cook started 22 games at age 24 and posted 1.6 win shares, ranking ninth worst for this era of Thunder basketball and fifth worst if you take out the inaugural 2008-09 season.
That year, the Ohio State product averaged five points, two rebounds, and 0.6 STOCKS per game while shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc on four attempts a night. That was quite the drop-off from his career-best year of 43 percent for the 2010-11 Thunder. Still, Daequan Cook was valuable for the OKC Thunder and cracks this list due to how difficult it is to find “bad” pieces in this era that started enough games to qualify.
