Patrick McCaw plans to sign with Raptors

Patrick McCaw plans to sign with Raptors

The NBA is investigating the Cavs for possibility circumventing the salary cap after waiving McCaw. He agreed to an offer sheet with the Cleveland Cavaliers on December 28, which the Warriors elected to not match. After passing on the Golden State Warriors' qualifying offer this summer, McCaw found it hard to find another offer.

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

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.

The Raptors are committing much less money than that, securing McCaw to a one-year veteran's league-minimum deal worth $786,000.




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. Fines could range anywhere between $3 to $6 million as well as the loss of future first-round draft picks.

But the investigation is just getting started and while one National Basketball Association official characterized the league as "strongly suspicious", actual guilt may be hard to prove.

"The Cavaliers also do not benefit from Toronto acquiring a 22-year-old wing player that could add bench dept amid its hopes to make an National Basketball Association championship run". "With McCaw averaging only 1.7 points on 22.2 percent shooting in 17.7 minutes through three games, the Cavaliers then waived McCaw on Sunday to sign free-agent guard Cameron Payne to a 10-day contract".
