The Dallas Mavericks have acquired Willie Cauley-Stein in a trade with the Golden State Warriors, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The Mavericks are sending the Warriors a 2020 second-round pick via the Utah Jazz in return for the big man, Wojnarowski adds.

Cauley-Stein gives Dallas a suitable replacement for starting center Dwight Powell, who suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers. The injury is expected to keep the Canadian sidelined for the remainder of the season.

Dallas is using its $11.7-million trade exception to acquire the 26-year-old. The exception was created when the Mavs dealt Harrison Barnes to Sacramento last February.

In 41 contests with Golden State this season, Cauley-Stein averaged 7.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks in 23 minutes per game. He figures to be a suitable pick-and-roll partner alongside Luka Doncic, as Cauley-Stein scores 1.14 points per possession as a roll man, according to NBA.com.

The former Kentucky product signed a two-year, $4.4-million deal with the Warriors this past offseason. His contract contains a $2.28-million player option for the 2020-21 campaign.
