Why Warriors might let Patrick McCaw leave for Cavs

Why Warriors might let Patrick McCaw leave for Cavs

McCaw averaged 4.0 points in 128 regular-season appearances with the Warriors over the past two seasons. Unless the Warriors decide to renounce his rights, he remains a restricted free agent and would again carry the same status next offseason.

The Golden State Warriors will have to make a decision on Patrick McCaw as the disgruntled shooting guard will sign an offer sheet with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Up until now, the Warriors have been strong on their stance that they will match any offer from another team.

It appears as though the 23-year-old's stint in basketball limbo has ended, thanks to the Cavaliers.

According to Wojnarowski, McCaw has "clearly indicated" he no longer wants to play for the Warriors.

A league source told ESPN it is a non-guaranteed, two-year deal worth $6 million.

Matching the offer would cost the Warriors over $11 million because of the luxury tax. Golden State knows DeMarcus Cousins will be returning at some point this season, so that has to be taken into account as well. No word from the Warriors yet, but we should expect something from Golden State. Is he willing to change his attitude?
