Update: The Warriors have no plans to match the Cavaliers’ two-year, $6 million offer sheet for Patrick McCaw, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Golden State Warriors holdout Patrick McCaw has finally made his move, opting to sign a non-guaranteed two year, $6 million offer sheet with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski.

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 NBA action this season.

Back in October, Golden State was willing to offer McCaw two years and $5.2 million, but the third-year guard declined that, per The Undefeated‘s Marc Spears.

The Warriors, who have until January 7 to make a decision on the offer sheet, appear to be unlikely to match. Per ESPN’s Bobby Marks, keeping McCaw would cost Golden State $11.3 million in luxury tax.

Entering a rebuilding situation in Cleveland, McCaw should have ample opportunity for playing time, provided the Warriors decline to match the offer, since McCaw is a restricted free agent.
