Willie Cauley-Stein is only 10 games into his second year with the Kings and he is already looking to be moved, according to RealGM.com. The former Wildcat is seeking a bigger role with another team and the Kings are open to any trade talks, per the report.
Cauley-Stein’s desire for more playing time is fair, considering he currently averages 14 minutes per game this year. He is getting fewer minutes than Kosta Koufos and he splits time with someone named Anthony Tolliver. Not to mention, the Kings drafted a center and a power forward (Skal Labissiere) with its first two picks this year. And he ain’t taking minutes away from Boogie.
With the word out that Cauley-Stein wants to be dealt and the Kings are willing to listen, I expect management’s phone to get plenty of rings with interest in the sixth overall pick in 2015.
