Cleveland Cavaliers sign Patrick McCaw to offer sheet

Cleveland Cavaliers sign Patrick McCaw to offer sheet

If McCaw is cut before January 7, the club won't be on the hook for his pro-rated $3-million salary, allowing the 23-year-old to become an unrestricted free agent.

McCaw was looking for a bigger offer from the Warriors this summer and did not receive one from the team or elsewhere until Cleveland's offer sheet.

Former Warriors swingman Patrick McCaw is practicing with the Cavaliers, who signed him to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet last week. The contract is fully non-guaranteed.

If the Warriors choose to keep McCaw, it could cost substantially more than just his salary figure because of luxury-tax ramifications.

McCaw was sidelined for nearly two months with a bone bruise in his lower back near the end of last season after a horrific fall during a game at Sacramento. Wojnarowski adds that McCaw signing the offer sheet is alluding to the fact that he doesn't wish to remain with the Warriors.

McCaw declined a two-year, $5.2 million offer from Golden State, a source told The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears in October.

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