Nik Stauskas has more than accepted his bizarre new nickname. He's embraced it and turned it into a business opportunity.

The Sacramento Kings rookie guard was mistakenly called "Sauce Castillo" on the closed captioning following a three-pointer he hit against the Philadelphia 76ers on March 24. The announcer said, "Stauskas, hitting the three," but the closed captioning read, "Sauce Castillo hit the three."

Fans embraced the new nickname and created numerous memes:

Before long Stauskas himself was laughing at his new moniker:

The rookie and his team embraced it, and April 5 was ""Sauce Castillo" night in Sacramento. The team gave away 16,000 bottles of hot sauce, some of which were signed by Stauskas.

Hopefully the hot sauce goes well with popcorn, because Stauskas is rolling in both.
