National Basketball Association continuing investigation into Cavs, speaking to Patrick McCaw’s representatives Thursday

National Basketball Association continuing investigation into Cavs, speaking to Patrick McCaw’s representatives Thursday

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

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the National Basketball Association is investigating Cleveland's move to essentially free McCaw from restricted free agent purgatory with Golden State only to cut him right after, something that isn't expected to hold up his signing with Toronto. However, he only ended up playing three games with the Cavaliers, who waived him before that deal would become fully guaranteed.

The Raptors aren't involved in the investigation.

The NBA-leading Toronto Raptors have added to their roster, signing free agent guard Patrick McCaw.

McCaw has appeared in 131 career games with Golden State and Cleveland, averaging 3.9 points, 1.2 assists and 15.9 minutes, and was a member of the Warriors' 2017 and 2018 National Basketball Association championship squads.

The Cavs recently signed McCaw to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet. McCaw was free to sign with any team after clearing waivers.

The New York Times reported that the National Basketball Association is investigating the Cavaliers for possible salary-cap circumvention, a probe that Golden State encouraged the league to undertake on the Warriors' behalf.

No one is exactly sure why the Cavs made a decision to go through with that plan, but they are being investigated by the league for possibly salary cap circumvention. He also will, once again, be a restricted free agent in the summer of 2019.

McCaw appeared in three games for the Cavs and averaged 17.7 minutes, 1.7 points and 1.0 rebounds per game. But McCaw lasted less than 10 days with the Cavs.
