Patrick McCaw

Contrary to what some people may believe, I think Patrick McCaw is very talented and has room to develop himself as a quality 3D player.

I'm not convinced GSW was ideal for his development since he would be behind Iguodala and Livingston. It's also true the ball handling duties wouldn't have exclusively been his with the emergence of Quinn Cook. Taking a bet on yourself to establish yourself in a new territory is bold and is something some players do successfully (Fred VanVleet, Joe Harris, Julius Randle) and I think McCaw could fit in this mold. He showed a poise in his seasons in GSW that few players his age are able to do. He actually contributed to their championship runs.

I'm just not sure Cleveland was the best place for him to land. There is so much competition on the wings already between Clarkson, Burks, Hood, Osman, and Nwaba. I'm not sure he'll get a fair shake this season as opposed to a team that is deficient on the wing. Time will tell. It always does.

Cavs

Dont bank on all of those wings being here after the trade deadline. Nwaba, Hood and Burks wont be in Cleveland after this season as all 3 of them are on the last year of their current contract.

Lost

Confusing..why would a player would HOLDOUT.. leave the team that drafted him that’s about to get you a third ring ..for a couple hundred thousand extra and an expanded role on a lottery team ? I’m pretty sure there’s a reason behind this

Yes, you’ve already

Yes, you’ve already identified it: playing time. If you play 15 minutes a game behind some of the best scorers the NBA has known, you don’t really get to show what you can do. Also, he could be forgotten if he plays that little for 5 years. He took a smart risk.

Was that an offer he got if

Was that an offer he got if so I agree. Unless he was killing guys in practice and we dont know about it take the 2 years bank the cheques and keep working on your game.

I like Patrick McCaw coming out of UNLV in 2016

It's just really tough for a young player to get Drafted by the World Champions & a Dynasty to boot & he has a skill set that they already Loaded with

I like McCaw to Cleveland

That's a Great opportunity for McCaw to get playing to time & build his career & Cleveland is Def looking for young talent

Don't sleep on these young guys who get drafted in the 2nd Round - these players coming out so young & the NBA is a Grown @ss man's League - it takes time

Look at Spencer Dinwiddie Drafted #38 overall by Detroit in 2014 or Montrezl Harrell drafted by Houston #32 overall in 2015 & I really like Jerami Grant who was drafted #39 right after Dinwiddie in 2014 by Phila - I Luv the role Grant has grown into in OKC & Dinwiddie & Harrell tearing it up for Brooklyn & LAC

Most Draft experts & Scouts consider those first 10 - 2nd Rnd picks (31 - 40) to be late 1st Rnd talent these guys just need time - I mentioned 3 but there are Many more - Jokic was picked #41 in 2014 right after Grant & Dinwiddie. Draymond Green was picked in this range.

McCaw was pick right in that 31 - 40 sweet spot at #38 in 2016 & he;s right at the point where if he's gonna break out next season will be his 4th year - so we'll see what he can do but I like the move for Cleveland & for McCaw
