Dallas Mavericks: Willie Cauley-Stein releases incredible workout videos
Dallas Mavericks center Willie Cauley-Stein drops incredible workout videos
The Dallas Mavericks traded for Willie Cauley-Stein after Dwight Powell suffered his season-ending Achilles injury. Trill was still settling in with his new team when the NBA suspended play back in March. The 27-year-old opted out of the restart for personal reasons. His absence allowed the Mavs to sign Trey Burke.
Cauley-Stein has a $2.3 million player option for next season. The free-agent market is filled with uncertainty right now. Nobody knows what the salary cap will be. It is expected that most teams will not have money to spend. That could play a factor in Trill’s decision.
The seven-footer may have missed the restart, but he is putting in work. Let us take a look at what WCS has been up to recently.
Dallas Mavericks center Willie Cauley-Stein is expanding his range in workout videos
Cauley-Stein has been posting videos of his workouts on Instagram for over a month now. It is clear that he is improving his ball-handling and shooting abilities. The Mavs official Twitter posted this video on Saturday.
Fans can see Cauley-Stein working on his handle here.
Both would be added elements to his game. The 27-year-old has attempted just 19 3-pointers in his five-year NBA career. Cauley-Stein did show some ability to handle the ball and be a playmaker in Sacramento. Clearly, it is a point of emphasis in his workouts.
Cauley-Stein added the location as Dallas, Texas in a number of his recent videos. It looks like he is ready to opt-in to his contract and rejoin the Mavericks next season. Dallas has frontcourt depth, but Trill could carve out a niche with his unique skill set.
That is one of the many developing stories to watch this offseason. Expect Willie Cauley-Stein to keep working on his game. It should be his best season yet in 2021, so do not miss it.
