The Sharks have released forward Da’Quan Cook after the big American failed to settle into the club’s playing style.

Cook, aged 26, was recommended to the Sharks by former player Paul Williams after the two attended the same university. However, Cook’s averages of three points and three rebounds per match saw him slip out of coach Atiba Lyons’ playing rotation.

Cook, who stands 6’8” tall, preferred a role further away from the basket but was prepared to play as a centre for the Sharks, but was unable to adapt.

The Star understands a replacement will be sought but won’t be brought in in time for Friday’s BBL Cup semi-final against Newcastle Eagles.
