The Cavaliers had to make a decision by Monday to keep McCaw on their roster at a prorated $3 million for the rest of the season.

In an attempt to possibly sign newly acquired Patrick McCaw to a more team-friendly contract, the Cleveland Cavaliers have chose to waive the point guard after signing him to a two-year, non-guaranteed offer sheet. Charnia says the Cavaliers are among the teams interested in signing him after he is released.

McCaw was a restricted free agent and refused to sign a deal with the Golden State Warriors, to the point he missed the first several months of the season.

In another move on Sunday, the Cavaliers signed guard Cameron Payne to a 10-day contract.

Villagers reportedly dug a makeshift shaft in a river bed to hunt for gold and were caught in the collapse, the BBC reported . Illegal mining is common in resource-rich Afghanistan, with the Taliban relying on the sector for much of its revenue.

The Warriors declined to match, so McCaw became a Cavalier.

The former lottery pick has averaged 5.7 points and 2.7 assists while primarily coming off the bench in 31 games.

McCaw originally was selected by the Bucks out of UNLV in the second round of the 2016 draft.

Payne was primarily stuck behind Kris Dunn (when healthy) and Ryan Arcidiacono in the Bulls' point-guard pecking order this year. Matthew Dellavedova is nursing an ankle injury and it's forced Alec Burks to play guard.
