Golden State Warriors restricted free-agent guard Patrick McCaw has reportedly ignored several of his veteran teammates who have reached out to him during a holdout that has extended through training camp and the preseason, according to a report from Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic:
“A few Warriors players talked to him before camp, advising him on what to do. But as his holdout has continued, he has not responded to several players checking in on him. Veterans, champions—the kind of men McCaw should be listening to—are being shut out.
“‘You can’t do this after two years,’ one player said. ‘You’ve got to get the clout first. He doesn’t have the leverage.'”
McCaw turned down his $1.7 million qualifying offer. Per Thompson’s report, the Warriors offered him a two-year, $5.2 million contract, with a team option for the second season, but McCaw has abstained from signing the deal and remains a restricted free agent.
