Patrick McCaw Joins Cavs On Two-Year, Non-Guaranteed Contract

The Warriors declined to match the Cavaliers two-year, $6 million offer sheet for the 23-year-old guard, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources.

Patrick McCaw made it clear in recent months that he didn't want to stay with the Golden State Warriors, the team that drafted him in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft. McCaw has been away from the team during his holdout after the Warriors offered him a two-year, $5.2 million contract back in October.

If Golden State elects to match the offer sheet, it would cost the team $11.3 million against the luxury tax, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks. The Warriors can waive McCaw by January 7 if they don't wish to match Cleveland's offer. The Warriors essentially replaced McCaw's minutes in the rotation with Alfonzo McKinnie, who they signed just before the season when they were unable to come to terms with McCaw.


McCaw averaged four points and 1.4 rebounds while shooting under 30 percent from three in his two seasons with Golden State.

The 23-year-old McCaw had been expected to be in the defending National Basketball Association champion's rotation this season but didn't re-sign with the team as a restricted free agent.
