Which brings us to the curious case of Patrick McCaw. December 28, 2018 The Cleveland Cavaliers today signed restricted free agent guard Patrick McCaw to a multi-year offer sheet, according to Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman.

McCaw averaged 4.0 points in 128 regular-season appearances with the Warriors over the past two seasons.

Earlier, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Cavs were 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.

Despite everything leading up to this offer sheet suggesting that the Warriors would match everything, it turns out that they may have been bluffing and it might not make the most sense for them to bring him back at $3 million a year.

Nonetheless, with the Cavaliers' current situation, McCaw could also be a cheaper option to go with as the team rebuilds post-LeBron James. Unless the Warriors decide to renounce his rights, he remains a restricted free agent and would again carry the same status next offseason. It's a fair question considering the fact he was a part of two championship teams in his first two seasons and would be passing up playing with a contender to play on a team with no chance of seeing the postseason.

Want your voice heard? He's looking out for himself, as every player must do.
