Patrick McCaw refuses to sign $1.7 million qualifying offer
"We're continuing to talk to his representatives," Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Monday at the team's media day. "We think the conversations have been cordial. We've been talking for most of the summer. We're going to keep talking. Hopefully, we get a resolution that works for him and us. We'll have to get him here. That's the plan now -- to continue to work in that direction."
McCaw has until Oct. 30 to accept the qualifying offer.
McCaw, who turns 23 next month, has spent his first two NBA seasons with the Warriors. He averaged 4.0 points in 57 games last season. His campaign was interrupted by a spinal injury on March 31 after suffering a hard fall against the Sacramento Kings.
"He plays the wing position, so we have to probably examine all the different wing possibilities," Myers said. "There's veterans and guys we will have in camp so a combination of that. The primary hope is we can get him here. My job is to give the coach and organization the best team we can. If that requires something else, that's what we'll have to do. But the focus is not to do that."
Warriors coach Steve Kerr is not the least bit worried.
