Video: Warriors’ Willie Cauley-Stein practicing corner 3-pointers, claims he attempted 500 triples


Willie Cauley-Stein is already preparing for the new chapter of his young career, as he was seen practicing three-pointers, heading into his first training camp with the Golden State Warriors.

Cauley-Stein posted a video on Twitter, showing him taking three-pointers, making the majority of his attempts. On his Twitter post, the 25-year-old center said that he was challenged to get his reps that day, and he responded by taking 500 three-pointers during the drill.

The former Kentucky standout is starting his adjustment early, as he is now expected to play an extended role in Golden State. The Warriors are known for their three-pointers, and Cauley-Stein appears ready to add another dimension to his game this offseason.

Cauley-Stein, who will be playing in his fifth year in the league, has only attempted 18 three-pointers in his first four seasons. That is expected to change, though, as he likely got the go signal to work on his three-pointers as proven by his recent workout.

The fifth-year center, who spent his first four seasons in the league with the Sacramento Kings after getting drafted sixth overall in 2015, signed a two-year, $4.4 million with the Warriors this summer. He is coming off a strong year after averaging 11.9 points and 8.4 rebounds in 81 games with the Kings last season.
