Another former St. Louis basketball star has taken the next steps to a career in the NBA.

Chaminade's Tyler Cook has signed a two-way deal with the Denver Nuggets.

After going undrafted out of Iowa, Cook averaged four points, 2.3 rebounds, one assist and one steal in his summer league action for the Nuggets.

At Iowa, Cook averaged 14.1 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in three years playing for the Hawkeyes.

With his two-way deal, Cook will be able to bounce back and forth from the NBA's G-League and the NBA's Nuggets.

Cook is the latest in a prestigious line of Chaminade stars to get a shot with an NBA team.

Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics and Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards are currently starring in the NBA, and big man David Lee was a former all-star in the league as well.
