Anthony Lacquise Cook (born March 19, 1967) is a retired American professional basketball player.
After having played collegiately at the University of Arizona, power forward–center Cook was selected by the Phoenix Suns in the first round (24th overall pick) of the 1989 NBA draft, and then traded on draft day to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Micheal Williams and the Pistons' first round draft choice (27th overall pick), Kenny Battle.
Cook played in 4 NBA seasons for the Denver Nuggets, Orlando Magic, Milwaukee Bucks and Portland Trail Blazers, in a career marred by numerous injuries. He had his best season as a rookie in 1990–91, when he appeared in 58 games for the Nuggets and averaged 5.3 ppg and 5.6 rpg.
