The NBA is trying to find out if there was any wrongdoing in the Cavs' deal with McCaw in late December, when McCaw was a restricted free agent with the Golden StateWarriors.
McCaw held out of the Warriors' training camp and the opening half of the season searching for an offer sheet, and he played three games without the benefit of practice for the Cavaliers.
Following this, Golden State has requested that the National Basketball Association formally investigate the circumstances surrounding McCaw's contract.
McCaw denied a two-year, $5.2 million contract from the Warriors in the offseason. 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.
The Warriors didn't match the offer, making McCaw a member of the Cavs.
McCaw appeared in three games for the Cavs and averaged 17.7 minutes, 1.7 points and 1.0 rebounds per game. If the league determines that Cleveland and McCaw had an under-the-table agreement, there would be consequences, and those consequences could include the forfeiture of the Cavs' 2019 first-rounder. Golden State could've matched.
Patrick McCaw has reportedly agreed to play for the Toronto Raptors.
Cleveland had until Monday to decide if the team wanted to keep McCaw on their roster and pay him a prorated $3 million for the rest of the season.
Cavs fans should be anxious about missing out on Zion Williamson (or R.J. Barrett, if you prefer), but the reason is the new draft lottery odds, not a possible punishment for doing Patrick McCaw a solid. After he cleared waivers, he was free to sign with any team.
One day before his contract became guaranteed, Cleveland waived McCaw.
McCaw was the 38th overall pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft out of UNLV.
