The league immediately had suspicions that McCaw and the Cavaliers reached an agreement to waive him so he could become an unrestricted free agent, Stein said.

Now, according to Yahoo's Shams Charania, McCaw will sign a one-year contract with Toronto for the veteran's minimum of $786,000.

In the midst of their worst season since 2010-2011, the Cavs chose to take a low-risk, decent-reward chance on McCaw, giving him an offer sheet worth $6 million over two years, but non-guaranteed.

The New York Times first reported that the National Basketball Association was reviewing the matter.

McCaw began the season as an unsigned, restricted free agent with the Warriors. He reportedly turned down a two-year, $5 million deal from the team along with its $1.71 million qualifying offer. The Warriors declined to match the offer.

Playing for the Warriors in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, McCaw averaged 4.0 points in 128 regular-season appearances.

McCaw cleared waivers on Wednesday after being released by the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this week. It's a stretch, but owner Dan Gilbert certainly is not fond of Golden State.

There might have been a league issue had the Cavaliers tried to re-sign McCaw at a lower number than the $3 million that he would've been owed this season, but the Cavaliers moved on from him.

For Patrick McCaw and the Cleveland Cavaliers, this is getting serious. "But if the National Basketball Association voided McCaw's contract, he could become a restricted free agent again". But McCaw lasted less than 10 days with the Cavs. If the league determines that Cleveland and McCaw had an under-the-table agreement, there would be consequences, and those consequences could include the forfeiture of the Cavs' 2019 first-rounder.

McCaw was the 38th overall pick in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft out of UNLV.

Few athletes have had a month stranger than the one Patrick McCaw just had.
