Nik Stauskas to launch 'Sauce Castillo' hot sauce

Tuesday April 14th, 2015

A closed captioning error has created a lucrative endorsement market for Sacramento Kings rookie Nik Stauskas.

Stauskas garnered the poetic nickname "Sauce Castillo" in March and has partnered with Musashi Foods for his very own hot sauce, he announced on Tuesday.

Earlier this month, the Kings held Sauce Castillo Night and gave away bottles of hot sauce with the tagline, "Bringing the heat from 22 feet."

The No. 8 pick in the 2014 NBA draft, Stauskas has averaged just 4.2 points this season, but at least he has a career to fall back on if the whole basketball thing doesn't work out.
