Patrick McCaw would love to remain with Golden State
When discussing the Golden State Warriors’ remarkable championship run this season, it would be easy to overlook the contributions of the team’s role players. However, the hard work put in by the likes of Patrick McCaw both on and off the court are undeniably significant.
With the 22-year-old’s two-year deal coming to a close, McCaw recently stated that if it were up to him, he would love to be part of the Warriors’ quest for a three-peat next season.
“I would love to be here,” McCaw told Logan Murdock of the Bay Area News Group. “There’s no other place I’d rather be, this is all I know. Who would want to leave such a great team or a great organization?”
Nevertheless, it is not his decision to make. The Golden State front office will be quite busy this summer, with the primary objective of keeping their core in tact. Unfortunately, renewing the deals of role players like McCaw are not exactly at the top of their priority list.
McCaw also acknowledged how injuries hampered his success in the previously-concluded season. The second-year man was only able to suit up for a total of 57 regular season contests, after dealing with a major back injury that kept him out of the rotation for a couple of months.
“Who wants to go through an injury like I did? Nobody,” added the 6-foot-7 shooting guard “So its all in God’s plan. So whatever he has in store for me, that’s the next step in my story.”
Despite stating his desire to remain in Oakland, McCaw understands that at the end of the day, it is going to be a business decision. However the tide turns for him, the St. Louis, Missouri native is undoubtedly grateful for the opportunity to have played with such a talented group of individuals that have reached legendary status.
