NBA rumors: Patrick McCaw wasn't happy Warriors signed Nick Young
 

 
NBA rumors: Patrick McCaw wasn't happy Warriors signed Nick Young originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com

Programming note: Watch the pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders tonight at 6 p.m. PT streaming live on the MyTeams app.

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple of months, you're aware that Patrick McCaw no longer plays for the Warriors.

Why isn't he suiting up for Golden State? How did things get to this point? Well, that is complicated. But we did learn something Friday morning that sheds some light. It has to do with what happened in July 2017.

As Marcus Thompson of The Athletic writes:

Apparently, whatever good feelings McCaw took with him into the offseason were short-lived. News leaked that the Warriors had agreed to terms with free-agent guard Nick Young. Immediately, McCaw's role was up in the air. Also: the Warriors re-signed Iguodala for three more years.

When training camp opened, coach Steve Kerr, without knowing it, might have made the situation worse by declaring an open competition for the backup shooting guard spot. According to insiders, this was the first grievance McCaw had with the Warriors and it is about the only tangible issue that has been vocalized.

Did McCaw expect Kerr to announce to the world that he was the solidified backup shooting guard? Is that even a thing? Did McCaw think he flat out earned that distinction because of a rookie season in which he averaged 4.0 points per game and shot 33.3 percent from deep?

The Warriors needed shooting off the bench, so they signed Nick Young, who made over 40 percent of his 3-pointers on 7.0 attempts per game the previous season. Although the "Swaggy P" signing didn't work out as the Dubs hoped, were they supposed to not add somebody of his caliber, just to appease McCaw?

In the summer of 2017, the Warriors also re-signed Shaun Livingston to a three-year contract. There was a recent rumor that McCaw wants the opportunity to play point guard, so perhaps Livingston's presence also irritated him and impacted his view on his future in Golden State?

Last week, McCaw told reporters in Cleveland that he simply "wanted a new opportunity to move on." Now, he is a member of the Toronto Raptors -- who are pretty loaded in the backcourt and on the wing.

Nobody is rooting for McCaw to fail. It would be great if he ends up having a long and successful NBA career. But as Steph Curry said back in late September, "I hope he's got good people in his corner giving him some sound advice."

The 23-year-old was willing to take a big gamble on himself, and only time will tell if he won the bet.

He thought he was a lock for the back pg/sg spot but couldn’t handle competition with Shaun, Swaggy and Cook. That’s not a good look for his future. Now he’s on a Raptors team loaded with backcourt depth making the vet min instead of the 2 years $5.2 million we offered him.

The man can do whatever he wants and sign with whoever he wants, but sh*t, there’s an awful lot of stories about a dude who is a borderline 12th man on any bench. Hoping he does well in tdot but there’s nothing that says he’s any better than the Cavs version of Danny green.

But he should still be a Warrior learning from guys like Iggy and Shaun. At the 2017 parade Iggy even said that McCaw was gonna take his place in a coulple years. We only have 14 players on the roster. They held that 15th spot open for McCaw or for a g leaguer or a buyout candidate. If he would’ve resigned with us to begin with we wouldn’t have picked up McKinnie.

Now he’s got the reputation of a guy who feels entitled and is afraid of competition. I said from beginning if he didn’t want to come back here his best bet was to go to a team like the Hawks where their GM was an a*sistant GM here and helped draft him. He could’ve gotten paid and saw good playing time to get better. Now he’s not getting either of those things.

especially this year with livingston/iggy missing time he would have had a major role early man.

n*gga you're Patrick McCaw on the warriors.. Your a*s don't have a right to be upset about sh*t, be happy you got a roster spot.

I don't know to many players that go from a roster spot on a championship team to immediately out the league.
