Cavs sign former Warriors guard Patrick McCaw to multi-year deal

Warriors decline to match Cavs offer for McCaw

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed restricted free agent guard Patrick McCaw to a multi-year offer sheet, Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts.

The deal will pay McCaw $3 million in each of the next two seasons, but the Cavs or Warriors could waive McCaw before January 7 and not be liable for his remaining salary.

A person familiar with the terms told The Associated Press that the Cavs' offer to McCaw was for two years and $6 million.

The Golden State Warriors will have an opportunity to match the deal and reportedly remain intent on retaining McCaw despite his interest in playing elsewhere.

Last season, McCaw struggled off the bench, averaging 4.0 points on 40.9 percent shooting from the field and 23.8 percent from 3-point range. McCaw clearly wasn't happy with his role in Golden State.

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.

According to ESPN's cap guru Bobby Mark, if the Warriors, back in action Saturday against the Blazers (10 p.m. ET - watch on fuboTV with the NBA League Pass extension), end up matching the offer sheet, it will cost the team $11.3M against the luxury tax.

The Warriors kept two roster spots open all summer. Is he willing to change his attitude?
