  • The Mavericks exercised Cauley-Stein's $4.1 million team option for 2021-22 on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Cauley-Stein will be back with Dallas for a second season at the same salary figure he played under in 2020-21. The 27-year-old wasn't a consistent part of the Mavericks' center rotation throughout the campaign, but he seemed to gain the trust of outgoing head coach Rick Carlisle down the stretch. Cauley-Stein appeared in all but one of the Mavericks' final 24 games (including playoffs), averaging 4.5 points, 4.3 boards and 0.8 blocks in 15.6 minutes per contest. Cauley-Stein will look to impress the Jason Kidd-led coaching staff in 2021-22 with the hope of sticking in the rotation ahead of the newly acquired Moses Brown.

  • Cauley-Stein will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against New Orleans, Mavericks radio play-by-play broadcaster Chuck Cooperstein reports. With Kristaps Porzingis (knee) rejoining the starting five, Cauley-Stein will return to his usual bench role after starting the previous five games. He's averaging 5.5 points and 4.6 rebounds in 17.4 minutes per game this season.

  • Cauley-Stein will start Tuesday's game against the Heat, Mavs play-by-play man Mark Followill reports. The big man will get the nod at center with both Maxi Kleber (Achilles) and Kristaps Porzingis (knee) sidelined. Kleber has already been ruled out for multiple games, and with Porzingis' longer-term status also in jeopardy, Cauley-Stein could be set for an increased role over the next few contests.

  • Cauley-Stein finished Tuesday's 133-103 win over the Warriors with six points (3-4 FG), five rebounds and two blocked shots over 23 minutes. The big man exceeded 20 minutes for the second straight contest, though he hasn't reached double-figure scoring in either of those games. His contributions have primarily come on the boards and on defense this season. He is averaging 4.3 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 17.3 minutes per contest.

  • Cauley-Stein (coach's decision) didn't play Wednesday in the Mavericks' 114-113 win over the Grizzlies. Cauley-Stein has been available for each of the Mavericks' three games since clearing the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocol last weekend, but he appears to have fallen out of head coach Rick Carlisle's rotation following a three-week absence. He's only made one 10-minute cameo in his first three games back, as he's failed to leave the bench in closely-decided games Sunday and Wednesday. Dwight Powell appears to be locked in as the main backup at center to Kristaps Porzingis.
