Sixers center Joel Embiid is getting a real, NBA-experienced back-up
Cauley-Stein played 18 games with the Mavericks this season and was waived Jan. 15.
Paul Reed backed up Embiid for the first three games after the Harden trade, while Paul Millsap played 11 minutes in the Sixers’ win last Thursday over the Bucks.
“Well, we’re looking,” Sixers head coach Doc Rivers said last week.
“We like some of the guys we have. Obviously Paul is going to help us with that — both Pauls. Paul Reed, as well. We have Charles Bassey. But the buyout market is out there as well and we’re looking.”
Cauley-Stein, 28, has 420 games of NBA experience with the Kings, Warriors and Mavs.
And his career slash is 8.8PPG and 5.9RPG.
