Sacramento Kings rookie Willie Cauley-Stein is showing why his defense made him a top-10 pick in this year’s draft. 

Cauley-Stein put together quite the highlight reel of impressive blocks while in college at Kentucky and has picked up where he left off in the Summer League. 

In his Summer League debut on Saturday, Cauley-Stein chased down Toronto Raptors guard Drew Crawford and blocked his lay-up attempt at the buzzer

Cauley-Stein was back at it on Sunday, swatting away Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris’s shot with authority.
