In exchange, Dallas sent Golden State a 2020 second-round draft pick, per Wojnarowski.
Cauley-Stein has averaged 7.9 points and 6.2 rebounds per game this season with the Warriors, his fifth in the league after spending his first four years with the Sacramento Kings. The 26-year-old is in the first year of a two-year, nearly $4.5 million contract with a player option for next season.
Dallas also traded Isaiah Roby to the Oklahoma City Thunder for Justin Patton and cash considerations earlier on Friday, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. They plan to waive Patton.
Cauley-Stein will could be a much-needed addition in Dallas this season following the loss of Powell, who suffered a ruptured Achilles on Tuesday night in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers and will be out for the rest of the season. He had averaged 9.6 points and 5.7 rebounds with Dallas this year, his sixth in the league.
