Former Warrior Patrick McCaw plans to sign with Raptors

Patrick Mc Caw Cavs

The Cavs could be fined or lose a draft pick if they are found guilty of any wrong doing, although it's going to be hard for the National Basketball Association to make a case that Cleveland did something illegal.

The NBA has continued its formal review into Cleveland signing McCaw to a two-year, $6 million deal and subsequently waiving him three days later before his contract would become guaranteed.

Patrick McCaw is an unrestricted free agent, and the Cleveland Cavaliers may be in trouble because of it. The Warriors had the opportunity to match, but they declined to do so.

Bolsonaro had backtracked on the embassy move soon after declaring in early November that he meant to go through with it. He called Bolsonaro's decision alarming and said it may put the future of the Amazon rain forest in jeopardy.

After only a week in Cleveland, McCaw was waived before his contract was guaranteed. Investigators likely feel that the team tried to circumvent his restricted free agency. The Warriors would not receive anything in return, per terms of the NBA's labor deal.

The NBA is investigating the Cavs for possibility circumventing the salary cap after waiving McCaw.

Toronto is McCaw's latest stop during a weird sequence of events that has featured him declining to sign the Warriors offer sheet during his restricted free agency over the summer, sitting out more than two months of the regular season, signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers last week, being released just three games into his tenure there, and reportedly signing with Toronto Wednesday. McCaw was expected to step into an expanded role in year three, but made a decision to hold out instead of agreeing to the Warriors two-year, $5.2 million offer during the offseason. McCaw and the Warriors played a bit of chicken, the Cavaliers put an end to it, then sent McCaw on his. He had interest from several teams, but ultimately chose Toronto after clearing waivers. However, it seems more likely that the Cavs would be fined - if they're found guilty.
