Patrick McCaw signs with Raptors

The contract was for two years and $6 million, but the Cavs gave themselves an out and waived McCaw after just three games.

Patrick McCaw is an unrestricted free agent, and the Cleveland Cavaliers may be in trouble because of it.

The Toronto Raptors are reportedly taking a chance on Patrick McCaw. McCaw was expected to step into an expanded role in year three, but chose to hold out instead of agreeing to the Warriors two-year, $5.2 million offer during the offseason.

According to several reports, McCaw is now planning to sign a one-year deal with the Toronto Raptors. It was the end of a freaky saga that involved a half-season holdout, an offer sheet, a surprising release, and an ongoing investigation by the National Basketball Association into how it all went down.

McCaw has appeared in 131 career games with Golden State and Cleveland, averaging 3.9 points, 1.2 assists and 15.9 minutes, and was a member of the Warriors' 2017 and 2018 National Basketball Association championship squads.

If the Cavs and McCaw arranged to waive McCaw before the contract was official, it would be a violation of league rules and could result in some dire consequences.Namely, the Cavs could be fined and be lose their first-round pick.

McCaw cleared waivers on Wednesday afternoon, sources said.

McCaw averaged 4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 57 games last season, his second in the National Basketball Association. He gets to play for one of the Eastern Conference's best teams and could make it back to the Finals for the third time in three seasons. After clearing waivers, McCaw made a decision to join the Raptors for a deal worth only $786,000. "But if the National Basketball Association voided McCaw's contract, he could become a restricted free agent again".
