The Golden State Warriors are finalizing a deal to trade Willie Cauley-Stein to the Dallas Mavericks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Mavericks will be sending the Warriors a 2020 second-round pick for Cauley-Stein.

The Mavericks will now have a center to help fill the void left by Dwight Powell after he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.

Cauley-Stein is averaging 7.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
