National Basketball Association to Review Cavs' Shady Move With Patrick McCaw at Warriors' Request

But because he was a restricted free agent, the Warriors could match any deal another team offered him, and this made things hard for him.

Patrick McCaw's short stay with Cleveland Cavaliers has raised eyebrows around the National Basketball Association, and the league itself is looking into the matter, according to multiple reports. McCaw's representatives say that is not the case. He averaged 1.7 points on 22 percent shooting in three games with Cleveland; they could argue that they weren't happy with his performance and had every reason to turn him loose. Cleveland may have found the terms enticing so they could evaluate a young wing player without any risk.

In Medina's article, he noted how fines could be "anywhere between $3 to $6 million as well as the loss of future first-round draft picks". Monday marked the deadline for non-guaranteed deals to become guaranteed, meaning McCaw becomes an unrestricted free agent after he clears waivers.

Michael Cohen To Testify Publicly Before Congress About Work As Trump's Lawyer
When asked about Cohen's testimony on Thursday, Trump said: "I'm not anxious ". Trump has denied directing Cohen to pay women who alleged affairs with Trump.

Though he struggled offensively and suffered a horrific back injury last season, McCaw's length and defensive prowess are what earned him minutes on the Warriors in his first two seasons.

The Warriors declined to match McCaw's offer sheet almost seven months after rejecting their $1.7 million qualifying offer and two-year, $5.2 million deal, which included a non-guaranteed deal his second year. Other teams are also reportedly interested in signing him, having deferred before when he was restricted.
