Willie Cauley-Stein 2018-2019 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

Where is his thread?


Been a bit slept on this season, but has opened up his season with the following line:

 

10/15 from the field

3/6 from the line

23 pts / 7 rebounds / 4 assists / 1 steal / 2 blocks / 0 turnovers

 

I think he could turn out to have a really nice season.

Every year WCS has a few games where you think “wow, he’s going to be a top 50 player” and then he adds a few clunkers, plays 20 mins, and we’re brought back to earth. It’s encouraging that he dominated Gobert and that he “wants to get paid” this year, but I’ll need to see more before buying in to an actual breakout.

Didn't play at all the last 15 minutes :/ which is a bummer because he was having a solid game till then. What are the odds he gets traded at some point this season? Being on the Kings is gonna hurt his value all year.

Don't think he's getting traded tbh

I personally avoided WCS in all drafts.  he's a good player but he's looking to get paid.  I'm not certain if the kings are convinced that he's their guy.  a trade would not help WCS as I don't think there are a lot of teams that can use a big who's still more of a traditional big.  a trade would open things up for bagley III and harry Giles though, which I think would be King's main incentive for doing the trade(and also to avoid overpaying WCS like the heat did with Winslow).  to be clear this is all speculation.  I don't have any sources to confirm any of this lol.

I don't understand some of the comments here.. He's been playing really well thus far. He's had foul trouble a couple times and last game was a blowout. They are winning and he's their starting center. He will get minutes and has shows thus far he will produce.

why is this guy only playing less than 20 minutes every other game? is it foul trouble or what?

 

He's just not that great of a player. He's serviceable, but ideally I don't believe he should be a starter in the NBA. I picked him up at out desperation in on league and am contemplating packing him for a trade or possibly just dropping him since a player I was shaky on is exceeding my expectations.
