Which brings us to the curious case of Patrick McCaw. Once he signs it, and he will, the Warriors have two days to match.
Patrick McCaw finally received an offer sheet above the two-years, $5.2 million that the Warriors offered earlier this season. He was traded to the Golden State Warriors on draft night and spent two seasons with the Warriors.
The Warriors, who are well over the salary cap, would be hit with an additional $11.3 million in luxury tax should they retain McCaw, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks.
Sources: McCaw's two year, $6M deal is non-guaranteed.

De Leon also told KNX-AM radio in Los Angeles that the sheriff was politicizing a tragedy and actually harming police work. Trump's demand that Congress approve $5 billion for a US southern border wall has led to a partial government shutdown.
Considering that McCaw accepted an offer for less than $1 million more than the best offer sent by Golden State, it's clear that McCaw just didn't want to stay with the Warriors. He also appeared in 21 postseason games (three starts) for the Warriors.
Given the many injuries the Cleveland Cavaliers are now dealing with, McCaw may be just a short-term solution.
As you can see from the video below, McCaw can come into a pressure-packed situation and deliver. Unless the Warriors decide to renounce his rights, he remains a restricted free agent and would again carry the same status next offseason. But the idea of a young player such as McCaw getting a chance to prove himself is rather intriguing on a team looking to go younger in the coming years like the Cavaliers.
