Former Warriors swingman Patrick McCaw is practicing with the Cavaliers, who signed him to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet last week.

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.

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. McCaw's 2019-20 contract is non-guaranteed for $3 million. He'll also got a major boost in pay after signing a two-year, $1.44 million deal with the Warriors in 2016.

Golden State was awaiting the electronic arrival of a signed offer sheet before it finalizes its decision on whether it'll match Cleveland's offer and retain McCaw, the source said. The Warriors are expected to guarantee forward Alfonzo McKinnie's contract in January too.

The No. 38 pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft is averaging four points and 1.4 rebounds per game in his career.

McCaw appears more than ready to move on from the Warriors, and had been negotiating with other teams as the season progressed.
