McCaw never reported to training camp during the offseason, apparently holding out in the hopes that another team would offer him more than the Warriors' $1.7 million qualifying offer.

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

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.

McCaw played in 57 games for the Warriors past year, making 10 starts. Per Bobby Marks, the Warriors tax bill would increase from $50.3 million to $61.6 million if they were to match the offer for McCaw, meaning there is a major financial decision on the horizon for the two-time defending champions.

But major economic initiatives have been stalled by the lack of progress on denuclearising the North. The two sides wrapped up their joint railway and road inspections for the projects this month.

Golden State offered McCaw a $1.7 million option to remain with the team and later replaced it with a beefier two-year, $5.2 million deal, with the second year being non-guaranteed, but neither offer proved good enough for the UNLV product.

McCaw, 23, averaged 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 57 games last season, his second in the National Basketball Association.

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.
