Warriors ask National Basketball Association to investigate Cavs' signing, release of Patrick McCaw

NBA to review Cavaliers signing release of Patrick Mc Caw per Warriors request report says

The Cavaliers signed McCaw to a two-year offer sheet worth $6 million and the Warriors declined to match.

According to The New York Times' Marc Stein, the National Basketball Association will investigate the situation at Golden State's request. But this summer, he chose to move on from the team and declined their qualifying offer. But if Cleveland turns around and signs McCaw to a guaranteed contract, the Cavaliers could face consequences. McCaw, who averaged 1.7 points in 17.7 minutes, cleared waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent.

McCaw spent his first two seasons with the Warriors, but held out after their most recent championship run. While that isn't a insane amount of money, it was far too steep of a price for the Warriors, who are already dealing with a ridiculous luxury tax bill. Eventually, the Cleveland Cavaliers extended McCaw a two-year, $6 million non-guaranteed contract.

The new measure was approved by the country's justice ministry on Sunday, Agence France-Presse reports citing local media. However, women still remain subject to male guardianship laws . "This system strangles Saudi women", said Abu-Dayyeh.

So McCaw was with the Cavs, until they waived him on January 6 and made him an unrestricted free agent.

It was a crafty bit of maneuvering by the Cavs, and it's easy to see how the Warriors would be annoyed by their tactics. After sitting out several months of the season, McCaw finally received an offer sheet from the Cavaliers that the Warriors did not match. 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. It will be interesting to see what the National Basketball Association decides to do with this.
