Patrick McCaw reportedly signing with Raptors

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

So at the end of the day, the only thing McCaw accomplished was escaping a team that has won three of the last four National Basketball Association championships.

McCaw then played three games for the Cavaliers before they released him ahead of a deadline that would have guaranteed his contract.

Patrick McCaw Cavs

The Warriors held McCaw's rights as a restricted free agent, then elected not to match the two-year, $6 million offer sheet that he signed with the Cavaliers on December 28 - with the potential luxury tax ramifications among the many reasons that factored into their thinking.

The deal is reportedly a one-year, veteran's minimum contract. It was a weird situation.

Now, McCaw joins Toronto's bench as the Raptors pursue an Eastern Conference championship.

Fast facts: who is Patrick McCaw? Cleveland signed McCaw and waived him to pick up recently waived Chicago Bulls point guard Cameron Payne. McCaw showed flashes in a limited role for the Warriors in his first two seasons and is yet another young wing with plenty of length for the Raptors to add to their deep rotation.

The NBA is investigating the Cavs for possibility circumventing the salary cap after waiving McCaw.

The debate here is on whether McCaw and the Cavs may have acted in bad faith to help the 23-year-old get out of Golden State. In essence, the Cavs would be helping McCaw escape restricted free agency. There is precedent for this, as back in 2000, the Minnesota Timberwolves lost five first-round picks due to their negotiations with free agent Joe Smith. After he cleared waivers, he was free to sign with any team.

The Milwaukee Bucks drafted McCaw with the 38th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. It's also reportedly the Cavs might re-sign McCaw, making his non-guaranteed deal seem even sketchier.
