The New York Times reported that the National Basketball Association is investigating the Cavaliers for possible salary-cap circumvention, a probe that Golden State encouraged the league to undertake on the Warriors' behalf.
McCaw denied a two-year, $5.2 million contract from the Warriors in the offseason.
McCaw accepted the offer sheet, and the Warriors then were given the option to match it.
McCaw played three games with Cleveland, averaging 1.7 points per game in 17.7 minutes.
Kevin Spacey appears in court, pleads not guilty to felony sexual assault
Spacey must stay away from the young man who accused him of groping him at a MA bar in 2016 and his family, the judge ordered. Despite the allegations of sexual harassment from Unhruh's son and other men , Spacey is reportedly still getting film offers.
Patrick McCaw may not be a big name in the National Basketball Association for now, but he has certainly drawn plenty of attention over the past several days.
At least four teams are reportedly interested in signing McCaw, while the Cavaliers may also want to bring him back.
Patrick McCaw seems to have found a new home - for the second time in fewer than two weeks.
After only a week in Cleveland, McCaw was waived before his contract was guaranteed.
One day before his contract became guaranteed, Cleveland waived McCaw. In essence, the Cavs would be helping McCaw escape restricted free agency. Under the terms of the deal, McCaw will make the minimum salary (less than he would have made had he stayed with 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. Fines could range anywhere between $3 to $6 million as well as the loss of future first-round draft picks.
