National Basketball Association reviewing McCaw's short stay with Cavs

When the Cleveland Cavaliers released guard Patrick McCaw soon after signing him to a non-guaranteed contract, the move raised some eyebrows.

McCaw was a restricted free agent of the Golden State Warriors who pretty clearly did not want to play for the team. Without knowing for sure, it certainly looks like a predetermined move by the Cavs and McCaw to get him out from under the Warriors' control and able to seek out a deal wherever he can find one, without that team anxious about their offer being matched.

The Golden State Warriors are unlikely to be one of those teams, as they are well in the luxury tax.

The Warriors held McCaw's rights as a restricted free agent, then elected not to match offer sheet he signed December 28 with the Cavs as they considered the potential luxury-tax ramifications involved. The New York Times first reported the Warriors' complaint and investigation.

Consulates in Melbourne and Canberra evacuated over 'suspicious package'
Sky reported that the scare coincided with the U.S. embassy's hazmat training, which had been booked for months. All of the incidents that matched the addresses of consulates in Melbourne were declared under control.

"I've got enough to worry about", Kerr said, before adding, "The whole thing was kind of odd". 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.

In his three games with the Cavaliers, McCaw averaged 1.7 points and one rebound per contest.

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