6. Willie Cauley-Stein
Cauley-Stein won’t play because his wife is pregnant. The Dallas Mavericks star expects the birth of his newborn child in July, so understandably wants to be with his partner during this time. First of all, he doesn’t want to risk her health during this vulnerable period.
With the NBA banning families from the Disney Hub until August, it simply wasn’t possible for Cauley-Stein to balance his commitments. That’s why he chose to put his family first. With a $2.29MM player option for 2020/21, he could still return to Dallas next season.
