Warriors have ‘no plans’ to match Patrick McCaw’s offer sheet

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors have ‘no plans’ to match the offer sheet restricted free agent Patrick McCaw signed with the Cavaliers. Unless something changes, this means McCaw will become a Cavalier at 11:59 p.m. tonight:

McCaw, 23, has not played this season due to his contract situation with the Warriors. Last season, he played in 57 games, averaging four points per game. He also missed a large chunk of the season, including part of the playoffs, after scarily falling in a game against the Kings and suffering a bruised lumbar spine.

For the Cavs, McCaw is an interesting player to sign. There is upside there, but he was a disappointment last season even before his injury. Still: Cleveland is not in a position to be picky with talent and McCaw certainly could be a good player in the NBA.

The other potential wrinkle here is that McCaw’s deal is not guaranteed, so he could be waived at any time with no financial penalty. At this time, it is unclear what exactly his future is in Cleveland.
