Warriors’ Bob Myers says roster flexibility played part in Patrick McCaw decision

Golden State Warriors' Patrick Mc Caw dribbles during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Milwaukee Bucks in Milwaukee. Mc Caw is practicing with the Cavaliers who signed him to a two-year $6

McCaw was sidelined for nearly two months with a bone bruise in his lower back last season after a fall during a game at Sacramento, ESPN reports.

Golden State now must decide whether to match the terms, and if the Warriors choose to keep McCaw it would cost substantially more than just his salary figure because of luxury-tax ramifications. The contract is fully non-guaranteed.

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.

McCaw can't be traded this season once his contract is guaranteed after January 7.

Thursday night was just one game, but the loss dropped the Lakers from fourth to fifth place in the Western Conference standings. Neither James nor Rondo will travel to Sacramento, and both are out for the team's game against the Kings on Thursday.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors are awaiting McCaw's signed offer sheet with the Cavaliers before deciding what they plan to do. Signing McCaw would also fill the 15th spot on the Warriors roster with DeMarcus Cousins nearing a return.

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.

In McCaw's stead, Alfonzo McKinnie has emerged from the basketball wilderness to seize a role as a reserve wing.
