  • Report: Warriors ask NBA to investigate Cavs' signing, release of Patrick McCaw

McCaw played three games with the Cavs, who waived him Sunday and did so before his contract would have been guaranteed for the remainder of this season.

Patrick McCaw is an unrestricted free agent, and the Cleveland Cavaliers may be in trouble because of it.

He reportedly reached a deal with the Eastern Conference-contending Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the 23-year-old is signing a one-year, $786,000 deal with the franchise.

A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the league has opened a review at the request of the Golden State Warriors, the team with which McCaw spent the previous two seasons. It was the end of a weird saga that involved a half-season holdout, an offer sheet, a surprising release, and an ongoing investigation by the National Basketball Association into how it all went down. McCaw was free to sign with any team after clearing waivers. The NBA had examined the two-year, $6 million offer sheet closely prior to approving it, league sources said, but found no reason to disallow it. McCaw was expected to step into an expanded role in year three, but chose to hold out instead of agreeing to the Warriors two-year, $5.2 million offer during the offseason.

The NBA is looking into the circumstances surrounding Patrick McCaw's short stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to multiple reports. He also will, once again, be a restricted free agent in the summer of 2019.

McCaw averaged 1.7 points and one rebound in three games with Cleveland this season before his release. But McCaw lasted less than 10 days with the Cavs.
