Golden State Warriors don't match Patrick McCaw's Cleveland Cavaliers offer, sources say

McCaw officially joined the Cavaliers' roster on Monday after Golden State decided not to match Cleveland's offer.

That's just what they've provided to us on this Friday morning, as Adrian Wojnarowski has just reported that Warriors restricted agent Patrick McCaw is signing an offer sheet with the Cavs. The contract is fully non-guaranteed. He'll also got a major boost in pay after signing a two-year, $1.44 million deal with the Warriors in 2016.

McCaw can not get traded this season once his contract becomes guaranteed after January 7th.

McCaw averaged 8, 3, and 3 over 36 minutes last season, but was sidelined for a considerable amount of time with a leg injury.

McCaw played in 57 games for the Warriors previous year, making 10 starts. However, he was immediately traded to Golden State for cash.

A person familiar with the terms told The Associated Press that the Cavs' offer to McCaw was for two years and $6 million. The club now has the final roster spot open, but with questions at the center spot, and DeMarcus Cousins still working his way through his rehab, the Warriors have decisions to make when it comes to the back end of the roster.
