Warriors ask National Basketball Association to investigate Cavs' signing, release of Patrick McCaw

Report: Warriors ask NBA to investigate Cavs' signing, release of Patrick McCaw Report: Cavs Could Lose 1st-Round Draft Pick for Signing and Waiving Patrick McCaw

The circumstances were freakish and raised questions about Cleveland's motivation to sign and release a player off the roster of their frequent NBA Finals rival. After three games with the Cavaliers, McCaw was waived on Sunday before his contract would have been guaranteed for the remainder of the season.

McCaw cleared waivers on Wednesday afternoon, sources said.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are now under investigation by the National Basketball Association at the request of the Golden State Warriors, who had former restricted free agent Patrick McCaw snatched from their very hands after failing to match a two-year, $6 million offer for his services. McCaw couldn't have signed for these terms while a restricted free agent, as an offer sheet must be for at least two seasons.

McCaw began the season as an unsigned, restricted free agent with the Warriors. Most league executives are skeptical that the Cavs would be punished.

Fast facts: who is Patrick McCaw?

The move will increase Toronto's luxury tax bill by $2.56 million, ESPN's Bobby Marks added.

McCaw was the 38th overall pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft out of UNLV.

McCaw was sidelined for nearly two months with a bone bruise in his lower back near the end of last season after a horrific fall during a game at Sacramento.

The Cavs make a valid argument that the team had lost Collin Sexton's backup in Matthew Dellavedova by the time they chose to sign Cameron Payne to a 10-day contract, therefore needing to free one roster spot - making McCaw the no-brainer choice at hand.
