If McCaw is cut before January 7, the club won't be on the hook for his pro-rated $3-million salary, allowing the 23-year-old to become an unrestricted free agent.

According to ESPN, the Golden State Warriors declined to match a two-year, $6 million offer sheet for the restricted free agent.

The 23-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at UNLV, was originally selected by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round (38th pick overall) of the 2016 NBA Draft.

Brendan Rodgers delighted with youth progress at Celtic
Steven Gerrard will leave it late before deciding whether to pitch any of Rangers' walking wounded into battle with Celtic. We said at half-time we needed the midfield to play with a little bit more objective and penetration and we got that.


For McCaw, who is now a restricted free agent with the Warriors, signing the offer sheet with the Cavs allows him to shed the restricted label and become a full unrestricted free agent, per Woj.

Golden State had until 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday to match the offer sheet, but let McCaw go to the Cavaliers on a deal that is non-guaranteed. Nothing against Golden State, front office, coaches, players, the environment, it had nothing to do with any of that. Signing McCaw would also fill the 15th spot on the Warriors roster with DeMarcus Cousins nearing a return.

McCaw averaged 8, 3, and 3 over 36 minutes last season, but was sidelined for a considerable amount of time with a leg injury.
