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

The Warriors passed on matching Cleveland's two-year, $6 million offer sheet to McCaw over luxury-tax concerns.

In the midst of their worst season since 2010-2011, the Cavs made a decision to take a low-risk, decent-reward chance on McCaw, giving him an offer sheet worth $6 million over two years, but non-guaranteed.

The NBA is continuing to investigate the Cavs' signing and hasty release of Patrick McCaw.

McCaw began the year as a restricted free agent and was in a holdout with the Warriors. The Warriors declined to match the offer.

McCaw averaged 1.7 points and one rebound in three games with Cleveland this season before his release.

For the Raptors, giving McCaw the chance may pay off, although it may come with some distractions thanks to the controversial turn of events after the Warriors-Cavaliers trade.

Jose Mourinho Set To Feature As Pundit For Premier League Clash
For now, Santiago Solari seems to have his future up in the air, with Real Madrid in talks with former manager Jose Mourinho . Mourinho was sacked by United last month and was replaced by former Red Devils' player, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After waiving McCaw, the Cavs, who are now dealing with several injuries, went out and signed point guard Cameron Payne to shore up their ranks at the point guard position.

It's surely been a whirlwind couple days for McCaw. "But if the National Basketball Association voided McCaw's contract, he could become a restricted free agent again".

McCaw officially cleared waivers on Wednesday after the Cleveland Cavaliers waived the 38th overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft.

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

While the Cavaliers followed all the rules, and can argue McCaw played poorly in what they viewed as an audition before his contract became guaranteed, it wasn't hard to find the circumstances a bit fishy. Imagine this story: the NBA's worst team losing their top draft pick all because they chose to help out a third-string guard.
