NBA To Investigate Ex-Warrior McCaw’s Short Cleveland Tenure

NBA To Investigate Ex-Warrior McCaw’s Short Cleveland Tenure

The Cavaliers are under investigation by the league office after signing Patrick McCaw to a two-year contract, then waiving him a week later, according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News. But if Cleveland turns around and signs McCaw to a guaranteed contract, the Cavaliers could face consequences. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no details of the probe have been revealed publicly.

The Warriors held McCaw's rights as a restricted free agent, then elected not to match offer sheet he signed December 28 with the Cavs as they considered the potential luxury-tax ramifications involved. His former team (the Golden State Warriors) had a chance to match the offer but they declined. The Warriors, who held McCaw's rights as a restricted free agent, elected not to match those terms.

McCaw spent parts of his first two years of his National Basketball Association career with the Warriors, but was not re-signed during the offseason as a restricted free agent.

Samujjal Bhattacharyya from NESO said people in the region would not "accept the political injustice perpetrated by the BJP". The BJP has 61 members while 12 MLAs of the Bodoland People's Front and a sole Independent member are backing the party.

How long the league's review will take has not been determined, nor is it clear what the Warriors might be seeking.

It turned out though, that $6M was also too much for the Cavaliers, so they waived McCaw before his deal would become fully guaranteed. Unfortunately for him, the defending champs aren't the best team to try and leverage, so Golden State let his free agency drag out well into the season.

Some have speculated the Cavaliers made the moves to spite the franchise that beat them in three of the past four NBA Finals.
