Patrick McCaw signs two-year offer sheet with Cavaliers

The two-time defending National Basketball Association champs won't match the Cleveland Cavaliers' two-year, $6 million offer sheet for McCaw, barring a late change of heart, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

After months of uncertainty, it appears that Patrick McCaw is taking a step toward returning to the court. Wojnarowski adds that McCaw signing the offer sheet is alluding to the fact that he doesn't wish to remain with the Warriors.

McCaw played in 57 games for the Warriors past year, making 10 starts.

If the Warriors choose to match, their luxury tax bill would increase from $50.3 million to $61.6 million, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks. They have 48 hours to match the offer.

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.

In two seasons with the Warriors, McCaw, who played his college ball at UNLV, averaged four points per game while playing 16 minutes off the bench a night. The Cavaliers will get the opportunity to watch McCaw, a 23-year-old forward, for the rest of the season before deciding whether to guarantee the second year of his deal.
