Patrick McCaw Signs G League Deal

Veteran Patrick McCaw has signed a NBA G League contract and will be suiting up for the Delaware Blue Coats, the Sixers‘ affiliate, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype (Twitter link).

McCaw, 26, was the 38th overall pick of the 2016 draft by the Bucks. He was traded to the Warriors on draft night, and spent his first two seasons with the club, winning two championships in the process.

He had a peculiar path after that, as he turned down a qualifying offer from Golden State in the summer of 2018 and a subsequent two-year, $5.2MM offer with a guarantee on the first year. That offer would have paid him substantially more than he ended up earning with the Cavs and Raptors during the 2018/19 season. McCaw explained that he didn’t want to re-sign with the Warriors because he was seeking “a new opportunity.”

McCaw’s stint with the Cavs in 2018/19 was brief, appearing in just three games before being waived, then signed with the Raptors and won his third championship in three seasons in a limited, reserve role. However, he struggled with left knee injuries the past few seasons with Toronto, and was waived in April of last year. He has been a free agent ever since.

In 199 career games with the three teams, McCaw holds averages of 3.8 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 16.9 minutes per contest. He’s a rangy, versatile defender, but isn’t a threat on offense.
