Willie Cauley-Stein Rumors
Ailene Voisin: George Karl’s absence from Willie Cauley-Stein noticed. Not all coaches show at intro pressers, but given the drama? Cited family reasons. George Karl in Denver for daughter’s swim meet (only 2 of 8 he can attend) and annual birthday party for his two grandkids. Absence noted.
The Sacramento Kings introduced Kentucky’s Willie Cauley-Stein, their first-round draft choice, to the local media on Saturday. He was on a day-long, meet-and-greet Sacramento tour. “He’s somebody who can really help us improve our team,” said Kings executive Vlade Divac at the news conference introducing his new player. He said Cauley-Stein brings skills to help the team on both offense and defense. “He’s fast. I wouldn’t like to play against him,” said Divac, who was pretty quick for big man himself when he was in the NBA with the Kings, Los Angeles Lakers and Charlotte Hornets.
