Warriors-Mavs-OKC trade grades: Will Cauley-Stein assist Dallas?
Dallas is sending the Utah Jazz’s 2020 next-round select to the Warriors in the deal.
Just after expending his initially 4 seasons with the Kings, Cauley-Stein signed with the Warriors this offseason on a two-calendar year deal. He is set to make $2.17 million this year and $two.28 million following, despite the fact that he has a player possibility for Calendar year 2.
In a separate deal, the Mavericks traded Isaiah Roby and funds to the Oklahoma Town Thunder for Justin Patton. The Mavericks have asked for waivers for Patton to open up a roster place and are using the $11.seven million trade exception designed from the Harrison Barnes trade final February to receive Cauley-Stein.
The trade drops Golden Point out to $two.57 million beneath the challenging cap and will save the Warriors $five.sixty six million towards the luxury tax.
The seven-foot Cauley-Stein, who skipped all of instruction camp and the preseason online games simply because of a still left foot personal injury, is averaging seven.9 factors, six.2 rebounds, one.five assists and a team-foremost 1.2 blocks in 41 online games (37 starts) for the Warriors.
