For the second time since the summer, Willie Cauley-Stein is on the move.
Dallas is sending Golden State a 2020 second-round pick (via Utah) for Cauley-Stein, league source tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 24, 2020
Cauley-Stein has averaged 7.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 steals in 23 minutes per game this season. However, the injury-depleted Warriors have floundered to a 10-36 record and are already out of the playoff mix.
Dallas, on the other hand, has the fifth-best record in the Western Conference at 28-16, but they need frontcourt help after Dwight Powell was lost to a season-ending injury.
Now, Cauley-Stein figures to have a major role for a Mavericks team that should be in the playoffs, which would be his first postseason trip.
