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

Unrestricted free agent guard Patrick McCaw spent just three games with the Cavaliers.

Patrick McCaw plans to sign a one-year, $786,000 veteran's minimum deal with the Toronto Raptors, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The 23-year-old was most recently waived by the Cavs earlier this week after signing a non-guaranteed 2-year, $6 million deal. The Warriors would not receive anything in return, per terms of the NBA's labor deal.

He did very well and caused a lot of problems to them. "But for me I just wish he stays with us". Of course, he can develop in Germany as well and don't forget Bayern Munich is also a big club.

Cleveland's alibi is that it had roster in shambles, reduced to nine available players against the Miami Heat last Wednesday after the injuries to Rodney Hood and David Nwaba, as well as both of their two-way players starting out their season in the G League. McCaw was a restricted free agent with the Golden State Warriors, but the defending champions chose not to match the contract. After three games with the Cavaliers, McCaw was waived on Sunday before his contract would have been guaranteed for the remainder of the season. Now, McCaw is joining a Raptors team that has the best record in the NBA and could meet Golden State in the NBA Finals. McCaw showed flashes in a limited role for the Warriors in his first two seasons and is yet another young wing with plenty of length for the Raptors to add to their deep rotation.

The Warriors apparently share those concerns and filed a request with the National Basketball Association to investigate the transactions. The New York Times reports the league has granted the request and will perform a formal review of the transactions.
