The Cleveland Cavaliers signed wing Patrick McCaw to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet this past week, and the Golden State Warriors elected not to match, meaning McCaw is officially a member of the Cavs.

The deal is non-guaranteed, which gives Cleveland some options.

The deal will pay McCaw $3 million in each of the next two seasons, but the Cavs or Warriors could waive McCaw before January 7 and not be liable for his remaining salary.

It means Federer and Williams will play against each other in the mixed doubles portion of that match. Williams looked sluggish early, and needed her left ankle re-strapped after winning the first set.


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.

If Golden State elects to match the offer sheet, it would cost the team $11.3 million against the luxury tax, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks.

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.

In two seasons with the Warriors, McCaw, who played his college ball at UNLV, averaged four points per game while playing 16 minutes off the bench a night.

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.
