NBA free agency rumors: Warriors will match any offer for guard Patrick McCaw

Patrick McCaw is still waiting for a contract he likes.

The third-year Warrior is in the middle of a holdout and has his sights set on securing a deal or being renounced by Golden State which would allow McCaw to sign with any team without restriction.  

But, according to a report from Yahoo Sports, Golden State is prepared to match any offer sheet for the No. 38 pick from the 2016 NBA draft. The report cited an identified league source, which said the team hasn’t budged on its stance to maintain McCaw’s rights.

The report also stated the 6-foot-7 guard has garnered interest from other teams, but those teams have received word of the Warriors’ intentions and are hesitant to submit an offer sheet.

Golden State has previously said it would “love to get” McCaw back.

The former UNLV guard did not accept the Warriors’ $1.7 million qualifying offer and also reportedly rejected a two-year, $5 million contract from the team.

In 128 games with the Warriors, McCaw has averaged four points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists. He’s shot 42.1 percent from the field but has only made 29.6 percent of his 3-point attempts. McCaw averaged 15.1 minutes his rookie year and increased his playing time to 16.9 in the 2017-18 season.
