Former Warriors player team should sign: Willie Cauley-Stein

The 7-foot Willie Cauley-Stein has been around the NBA since being a first-round pick in the No. 6 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Cauley-Stein has high expectations, but sadly, he was closer to his floor than his ceiling.

Cauley-Stein had scouts hoping he was the next dominant defensive center.

He showed that type of potential at the collegiate level. Cauley-Stein did have a few good seasons in the pros, scoring 12.8 points per game and yanking down 7 rebounds per game during his third season in the league.

His success didn’t keep up, and he has played just 20 games this season, 18 with the Mavericks and 2 with the 76ers. Cauley-Stein spent a 41-game stint with the Warriors during the 2019-2020 season, averaging 7.9 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.

Cauley-Stein would help give the Warriors some depth behind Looney and could keep pace with backup centers like Hassan Whiteside. Giving him a workout is undoubtedly worth a shot for the Dubs.
