Charania has since added that the second year of the player’s new deal is a team option.
“Mavericks quietly received strong consideration from Marc Gasol since the start of free agency, but moved to re-sign Cauley-Stein today,” the NBA insider also tweeted on Sunday.
Cauley-Stein opted out of his $2.29 million player option to become an unrestricted free agent last week and has earned himself a bigger deal having decided to return to Dallas.
