Warriors decline to match Cavs offer for McCaw

Share

On Sunday, he became a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, after signing a two-year, $6 million offer sheet that the Warriors chose not to match.

The Cavaliers or Warriors could waive McCaw before January 7 and not be responsible for paying the remainder of his contract.

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.

McCaw has held out this season and stayed away from Golden State in an attempt to secure a contract of his liking or in hopes that the Warriors would renounce him, allowing him to sign with any team without restriction.

Matching the McCaw offer sheet would have elevated the Warriors' luxury tax bill $11.3 million to $61.6 million. Signing McCaw would also fill the 15th spot on the Warriors roster with DeMarcus Cousins nearing a return.

McCaw is in his third season and averaged 4.0 points in each of his first two seasons.

McCaw appears more than ready to move on from the Warriors, and had been negotiating with other teams as the season progressed.

The deal is non-guaranteed, which gives Cleveland some options.
