Up until now, the Warriors have been strong on their stance that they will match any offer from another team.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Golden State Warriors guard Patrick McCaw is signing a two-year, $6 million offer sheet with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The contract is fully non-guaranteed.
McCaw, 23, was a pleasant surprise for the Warriors during their 2017 championship run, but injuries and sticky contract negotiations have prevented him from playing a second of National Basketball Association action this season.
McCaw has held out this season and stayed away from Golden State in an attempt to secure a contract of his liking or in hopes that the Warriors would renounce him, allowing him to sign with any team without restriction.
McCaw was sidelined for nearly two months with a bone bruise in his lower back last season after a fall during a game at Sacramento, ESPN reports.
Golden State was awaiting the electronic arrival of a signed offer sheet before it finalizes its decision on whether it'll match Cleveland's offer and retain McCaw, the source said.
McCaw averaged 4.0 points in 128 regular-season appearances with the Warriors over the past two seasons.
