Cauley-Stein has been an intriguing piece of the puzzle for the whole Kings organization. He has often shown signs of a fairly high ceiling, but has disappointed equally. Last year he scored almost 13 points and pulled down 7 boards in what was his best career year in the NBA so far.

Despite starting all 81 games for Sactown this year and averaging over 27 minutes per game on the court, his numbers saw a noticeable decline. Many consider him a "10-point-10-rebound average" caliber player but his inconsistencies usually take over.

Being an elite defensive center in his college days, Caulie-Stein averaged just 0.6 blocks per game throughout the entire 2018-19 regular season, along with commiting a career-high 2.8 personal fouls per game. He possesses great footwork and athleticism that allows him to dictate terms in the paint but his defense has been his Achilles heel for quite some time now.
