In exchange, the Warriors received a 2020 second round pick that was in the custody of the Mavericks. The pick originally belonged to the Utah Jazz.

This could be one of several moves the team makes before the end of the trade deadline in February. Cayley-Stein signed a one-year deal with the Warriors in the off-season.

Dallas also need a big, which they were able to get with Cauley-Stein. This week, the Mavericks lost center Dwight Powell to a torn Achilles tendon in injury.

Powell is expected to miss one year with this injury. That means he will not be able to the association until January 2021.

The 26-year-old appeared in 41 games, including 37 starts this season. He was averaging 7.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.2 blocks per game in 22.9 minutes.

This is Cauley-Stein’s third NBA team. Besides playing for the Warriors, he also played four seasons with the Sacramento Kings.

He was the sixth overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
