Patrick McCaw signs two-year offer sheet with Cavaliers

Patrick McCaw signs two-year offer sheet with Cavaliers

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to deliver the news that McCaw's offer sheet with the Cavs would be worth $6 million over two seasons.

It's important to note that the Warriors can match any offer sheet McCaw receives from another team, so the move isn't finalized just yet. Since McCaw is a restricted free agent, the Warriors have the right to match the offer if they choose to. 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. McCaw's 2019-20 contract is non-guaranteed for $3 million. Per ESPN's Bobby Marks, keeping McCaw would cost Golden State $11.3 million in luxury tax.

After months of uncertainty, it appears that Patrick McCaw is taking a step toward returning to the court. The guard refused to sign his term sheet with the Warriors over the offseason and has been without the team for the entirety of the season.

McCaw averaged 4 points and 1.7 rebounds last season for the Warriors.

The 23-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at UNLV, was originally selected by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round (38th pick overall) of the 2016 NBA Draft.
