Report: Warriors Not Expected to Match Cavs’ Offer for Patrick McCaw
- Updated: December 30, 2018
Earlier this week it was reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers signed current Golden State Warriors guard Patrick McCaw to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet, and it now appears that the Warriors are going to let McCaw walk.
According to the most recent update, the Warriors are not expected to match the Cavs’ offer to retain the young guard.
Barring a late change of heart, Golden State will not match Cleveland's two-year, $6M offer sheet for Patrick McCaw, league source tells ESPN. McCaw will join the Cavaliers.

On Saturday, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr answered questions regarding the matter and he seemed resigned to the fact that McCaw would not be in Golden State for much longer.
Now that it appears that McCaw will join the Cavs shortly, it will be interesting to see what role he assumes in the rotation. He has yet to play an NBA game this season due to a bone bruise in his lower back that he sustained last season, but it appears that his return could be imminent.
Last season, McCaw averaged 4.0 points, 1.4 assists, and 1.4 rebounds in 16.9 minutes per game.
With so much turnover in Cleveland this season, it will be nice to see another fresh face working to make his mark on a team that is still searching for a winning identity.
