McCaw had an option this offseason and now with August just around the corner, the combo guard is expected to pick up his $1.74 million qualifying offer for next season according to The Athletic’s Anthony Slater.
McCaw was a second-round pick out of UNLV in 2016 and was a big part of the Warriors’ title run his rookie season before missing 25 games this most recent campaign. Still a promising talent, the Warriors may have to lean on McCaw even more this upcoming season.
With McCaw set to pick up his qualifying offer, the Warriors roster appears to be nearly set including some sneaky free agency additions. Backup shooting guard Nick Young will likely be left out, leaving McCaw to shoulder some more minutes off the bench alongside fellow reserve guard Shaun Livingston.
The Warriors also added some depth and another star to their roster this summer, in the forms of veteran forward Jonas Jerebko and DeMarcus Cousins who inked a one-year deal. With Patrick McCaw also expected to remain aboard for next season, the Warriors will come back for a three-peat deep, star-studded, experienced and with bonafide championship pedigree.
