C • 7’0, 240 lbs; 5th year, Kentucky

STAR UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: SKILLED, ATHLETIC PIVOT

 

Willie Cauley-Stein: a new wave, defensive-oriented pivot w/ a nice future; WCS checks most boxes: very athletic, nice help-side shot blocker, can switch out on almost anyone as a hedge man (guards have a tough time getting around WCS when he steps out to defend); new wave aspects? his unusual offense: gets the majority of his points via layups & buckets off the dribble, transition points (runs the floor like a forward) & oops...but that’s not all: WCS can knock down turnarounds*, short corner Js off screens, and floaters; developing better focus on the glass; plays a little too fast: gets hurried up (needs to work polish up timing); signed w/ Warriors – could thrive new surroundings

 

*infrequent doses, sure
