Mavericks’ Willie Cauley-Stein decides to restart the NBA; Team signs Trey Burke
According to Shams Charania, the Dallas Mavericks Center Willie Cauley-Stein has decided to suspend the resumed NBA season.
Cauley-Stein and his partner are expecting a newborn child in July.
Cauley-Stein is the fourth player to decide against Avery Bradley, Trevor Ariza and Davis Bertans against the NBA restart.
In 13 games with the Mavericks after trading with the Golden State Warriors, Cauley-Stein scored an average of 5.2 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.
The Mavericks quickly filled Cauley-Stein’s squad for the rest of the season when the team signed Trey Burke.
Burke receives a minimum salary for the rest of the season and becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
It was reported recently that the Mavericks were interested in Burke before they officially signed it.
The 27-year-old Burke is familiar with the team because he played 25 games for the Mavericks last season.
He will give depth to Jalen Brunson due to shoulder surgery at the Point Guard.
