Willie Cauley-Stein is already making absurd defensive plays in the NBA

Willie Cauley-Stein's immense defensive potential was a big reason the Kings used the No. 6 pick on the Kentucky product. It took him two quarters of his first NBA Summer League game to show a glimpse of that potential.

So much speed and length. A 7'1 center should not be able to record a chase-down block on a guard. Willie Cauley-Stein is not like most 7'1 centers though. Just another example that Cauely-Stein can guard anyone on Earth.
