With a pair of championship rings and experience playing behind future Hall-of-Famers under his belt, Patrick McCaw is hoping for a better payday.
Sources on @TheAthleticNBA@WatchStadium: Restricted free agent Pat McCaw plans to decline his one-year, $1.7M qualifying offer with the Warriors, barring unforeseen change.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) October 2, 2018
It would allow today's deadline to expire and keep him RFA.
It appears that Warriors guard Patrick McCaw plans to turn down two-year $4M offer from the champs tonight, a source said.— Marc J. Spears (@MarcJSpearsESPN) October 2, 2018
It’s actually a two-year deal paying about $5 million and the second year is not guaranteed, a source said. https://t.co/YkrY0U6KM9— Marc J. Spears (@MarcJSpearsESPN) October 2, 2018
McCaw has averaged 4.0 points and 1.4 rebounds in 15.9 minutes per game over his first two years with Golden State. The 22-year-old swingman was taken 38th overall in the 2016 NBA Draft, making him the latest of several second-round talents to be groomed by the Warriors. Draymond Green (35th in 2012) and Jordan Bell (38th in 2017) were also taken early in the second round of their respective drafts.
