Willie Cauley-Stein has flummoxed the Sacramento Kings for much of his young career. The experience of watching him for the last four years has been characterized by a wild oscillation between excitement and frustration. His inconsistency has put Sacramento’s front office and coaching staff in difficult places time after time.
Before the 2019 free agency period can begin this July, the Kings will have to make another tough decision regarding their former first-round pick.
Sacramento can obtain the right of first refusal — or ‘matching rights’ — for any contract signed by Cauley-Stein this offseason by making him a restricted free agent.
