Less than one hour after Los Angeles Lakers free-agent signing Jared Dudley had decided on his new number, he had already agreed to change it. But this was due to the fact that one of his new teammates, Quinn Cook, was hoping to land the No. 2 which Dudley revealed he had selected on Twitter.
Cook wore the number during his time with the Duke Blue Devils but was No. 4 with the Golden State Warriors. And after Dudley announced the number on social media, Cook tweeted that he was going to choose No. 2, and the veteran forward made it known he had no issue giving it to his young teammate.
