NBA free agency rumors: Patrick McCaw still negotiating with Warriors, ‘in discussions’ with multiple teams

Patrick McCaw

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

Patrick McCaw is still a free agent. But, there appears to be multiple teams interested in him.

The 22-year-old guard has missed the first 11 games of the season as he is a restricted free agent and has yet to sign a contract with Golden State. But, McCaw “remains in discussions with several” teams, including the Warriors, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites an unidentified league source.

The report does not say which teams McCaw is currently speaking with.

McCaw did not accept Golden State’s $1.7 million qualifying offer and also reportedly rejected a two-year, $5 million contract from the team.

The guard averaged four points and 1.4 assists for Golden State last season. He shot 40.9 percent from the field and just 23.8 percent from 3-point range.

McCaw suffered a bone bruise after a scary fall in late March. He missed the rest of the regular season and did not return until Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals.

McCaw originally was selected by the Bucks out of UNLV in the second round of the 2016 draft. He was acquired by Golden State in exchange for cash considerations in a draft-day deal.
