Free-agent center Willie Cauley-Stein is returning to the Dallas Mavericks on a two-year, $8.2 million contract, multiple outlets reported Sunday.

Cauley-Stein, 27, played four seasons in Sacramento after the Kings selected him with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. He signed as a free agent with Golden State in July 2019 and was traded to the Mavericks in January for a second-round selection in the 2020 draft.

In 54 games (39 starts) between the Warriors and Mavs last season, he averaged 7.2 points and 5.8 rebounds.

Over 349 career games, the 7-footer has averaged 9.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game over 23.5 minutes.
