National Basketball Association to investigate Cavaliers signing, release of McCaw

He rejected their contract offers, instead waiting to see if someone would sign him to an offer sheet Golden State wouldn't match.

In December, the Cleveland Cavaliers signed Golden State Warrriors restricted free agent Patrick McCaw to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet.

The NBA is looking into the circumstances surrounding Patrick McCaw's short-lived stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

A person with knowledge of the matter spoke Tuesday with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the investigation have not been revealed publicly. The New York Times reports the league has granted the request and will perform a formal review of the transactions. His former team (the Golden State Warriors) had a chance to match the offer but they declined. But the Cavs waived McCaw on Sunday, one day before his contract would've become guaranteed for the season.

"I've got enough to worry about", Kerr said, before adding, "The whole thing was kind of odd". Monday marked the deadline for non-guaranteed deals to become guaranteed, meaning McCaw becomes an unrestricted free agent after he clears waivers. According to salary cap guru Albert Nahmad, McCaw - who averaged 1.7 points per game with Cleveland - made $323,529 with the Cavs. Other teams are also reportedly interested in signing him, having deferred before when he was restricted. He scored 5 total points in the three appearances with the Cavaliers.
