National Basketball Association officials speaking with McCaw's representatives

  • Patrick McCaw Cavs

McCaw signed a non-guaranteed offer sheet with the Cleveland Cavaliers a few weeks back, which wasn't matched by the Warriors, only to get released by Cleveland after a handful of games.

McCaw, who won two National Basketball Association titles as a swingman for the Warriors, plans to sign a veteran's minimum contract with the Toronto Raptors, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

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

The Cavs' transactions raised eyebrows around the league and reportedly prompted the Warriors to request that the National Basketball Association investigate the moves. That offer never came, but his wishes did not change, as he rejected Golden State's qualifying offer and a reported offer of two years and $5.2 million. This would be beneficial for McCaw because he could sign a cheap deal with another team and not worry about Golden State matching the offer.

McCaw averaged 4.0 points, 1.4 assists and 1.4 rebounds per game on a stacked Warriors team last season before suffering a scary looking injury in March.

McCaw played in just three games for the Cavaliers, scoring five points in 53 minutes.

Of course, how McCaw became an unrestricted free agent is one of the stranger stories in recent memory. "But if the National Basketball Association voided McCaw's contract, he could become a restricted free agent again". 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.

McCaw cleared waivers on Wednesday after being released by the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this week. Golden State could've matched. But McCaw lasted less than 10 days with the Cavs.

With the way things have been going for the Cavs, who now have the NBA's worst mark at 8-34, that could be the first pick in the entire draft.

McCaw, who had been out for months, was seeking multi-years with multi-millions attached.
