Yet another player has decided to opt out from the NBA resumed season in Orlando. This time was the Dallas Mavericks turn, as Willie Cauley Stein won't be part of the squad traveling to Florida.
Cauley-Stein and his partner are expecting a newborn child according to Shams Charania from The Athletic.
The Center, who played for both the Warriors and Mavs this season, averaged 7.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game.
His spot will be filled by Trey Burke, as Dallas has decided to sign the guard in a deal for the rest of the season. The 27 year-old from Ohio last played in the NBA this season with the Sixers, competing in 25 games and recording almost six points per contest.
Trey Burke is supposed to strength Dallas backcourt, considering Guard Jalen Brunson underwent shoulder surgery in March and isn’t expected to be available for the team.
