Former Warrior Patrick McCaw plans to sign with Raptors

However, it was then reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers, now last place in the East, would offer him said deal.

Now, McCaw, per The Athletic's Shams Charania, has interest from several contenders after becoming an unrestricted free agent.

Eventually, he agreed to a two-year, $6M deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but only after sitting out until late December.

McCaw played only three games with the Cavaliers and was waived before his contract would have been guaranteed for the remainder of this season.

The Warrior filed a request with the National Basketball Association to investigate whether the transactions qualified as salary-cap circumvention. He remains inconsistent, but all that may be because he was on a team like the Golden State Warriors that was already filled with stars.

If he helps them, great.

McCaw was sidelined for nearly two months with a bone bruise in his lower back near the end of last season after a horrific fall during a game at Sacramento.

Few athletes have had a month stranger than the one Patrick McCaw just had. "But if the National Basketball Association voided McCaw's contract, he could become a restricted free agent again".

The debate here is on whether McCaw and the Cavs may have acted in bad faith to help the 23-year-old get out of Golden State. In 1998, Smith had turned down an $80 million extension from, guess who, Golden State, in order to sign a one-year deal with Minnesota worth just $1.75 million.

The Milwaukee Bucks drafted McCaw with the 38th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. The pick would, per the CBA, be lost.

At least four teams are reportedly interested in signing McCaw, while the Cavaliers may also want to bring him back.

With the way things have been going for the Cavs, that could be the first pick in the entire draft. The Cavs can simply claim that they did not feel McCaw was worth rostering anymore, and because of his poor play, they did not want to pay his guaranteed salary.
