The Golden State Warriors declined to match a two-year, $6 million offer sheet for restricted free agent Patrick McCaw, clearing the way for him to join the Cleveland Cavaliers, league sources told ESPN.

The team that drafted him, won two Finals with him on the roster and wanted him back this season, on a two-year, $5.2 million contract, with rotation minutes his for the taking.

For McCaw, who is now a restricted free agent with the Warriors, signing the offer sheet with the Cavs allows him to shed the restricted label and become a full unrestricted free agent, per Woj. Wojnarowski adds that McCaw signing the offer sheet is alluding to the fact that he doesn't wish to remain with the Warriors. Per ESPN's Bobby Marks, keeping McCaw would cost Golden State $11.3 million in luxury tax.

If the Cavs hold onto McCaw, the team can view the rest of the season as an audition and determine whether or not it's worth guaranteeing the second year of his contract.

It has not yet been determined how long it will be before McCaw can return to game action after sitting out the season's first three months.
