Warriors RFA McCaw to sign Cavs' offer sheet

Warriors RFA McCaw to sign Cavs' offer sheet

The club now has the final roster spot open, but with questions at the center spot, and DeMarcus Cousins still working his way through his rehab, the Warriors have decisions to make when it comes to the back end of the roster.

The Cleveland Cavaliers said Friday that they have signed restricted free agent guard Patrick McCaw to an offer sheet.

Shams Charania of The Athletic then confirmed the news two minutes later, and so did multiple reporters.

The Warriors, who have until January 7 to make a decision on the offer sheet, appear to be unlikely to match.

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

An insider said that Meghan "wants her mom to move" to the United Kingdom after her baby is born. Queen Elizabeth even mentioned Harry and Meghan's baby news during her annual Christmas address.

Matching the offer would cost the Warriors over $11 million because of the luxury tax.

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. No word from the Warriors yet, but we should expect something from Golden State. He shot 42.1 percent from the field and 29.6 percent from three.

The Cavs are reportedly signing McCaw to a two-year, $6 million non-guaranteed offer sheet, forcing the Warriors to either match the deal or waive him by January 7.
