Patrick McCaw signs with Raptors

The Warriors held McCaw's rights as a restricted free agent, then elected not to match the two-year, $6 million offer sheet that he signed with the Cavaliers on December 28 - with the potential luxury tax ramifications among the many reasons that factored into their thinking.

National Basketball Association officials are visiting with Patrick McCaw's representatives Thursday, as the league begins an investigation centered on a contract between McCaw and the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to reports. 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. He signed a two-year, $6 million offer sheet with Cleveland, but was let go just three days into his tenure.

The NBA is investigating the circumstances surrounding McCaw's release at the Warriors request, according to an earlier report by the New York Times. The former Warriors guard held out at the beginning of the season in hopes for a better deal despite being a restricted free agent coming off a pretty gruesome injury. The Warriors declined to match the offer.

Browns Relieve Interim Head Coach Gregg Williams of Duties
Back when he was on Bruce Arians' staff in Arizona in 2013, he felt two pops in his chest , his vision blurred, and he went numb. Because of the Browns' improved performance in the second half of the season, they finished 7-8-1, their best record since 2007.

For the Raptors, giving McCaw the chance may pay off, although it may come with some distractions thanks to the controversial turn of events after the Warriors-Cavaliers trade.

Now, McCaw joins Toronto's bench as the Raptors pursue an Eastern Conference championship. It's a stretch, but owner Dan Gilbert certainly is not fond of Golden State.

After waiving McCaw, the Cavs, who are now dealing with several injuries, went out and signed point guard Cameron Payne to shore up their ranks at the point guard position. On top of this, if there is any instance of collusion between both the Cavaliers organization and McCaw's group, then Cleveland will lose their 2019 first-round draft pick along with future draft selections.
