National Basketball Association free agency rumors: Patrick McCaw to sign with Raptors

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. And now that he is an unrestricted free agent, the former UNLV standout reportedly plans to sign with the Raptors with a veteran's minimum of $786,000 for one year, according to Shams Charania.

The Raptors announced Thursday that the club had signed McCaw, although terms of the deal were not disclosed. That offer never came, but his wishes did not change, as he rejected Golden State's qualifying offer and a reported offer of two years and $5.2 million. The Warriors had the opportunity to match, but they declined to do so.

McCaw averaged 4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 57 games last season, his second in the National Basketball Association.

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.

McCaw was waived by Cleveland on Monday.


Cavs fans should be anxious about missing out on Zion Williamson (or R.J. Barrett, if you prefer), but the reason is the new draft lottery odds, not a possible punishment for doing Patrick McCaw a solid.

McCaw cleared waivers on Wednesday afternoon, sources said. He also will, once again, be a restricted free agent in the summer of 2019.

McCaw and the Warriors played a bit of chicken, the Cavaliers put an end to it, then sent McCaw on his.

"The Cavaliers also do not benefit from Toronto acquiring a 22-year-old wing player that could add bench dept amid its hopes to make an National Basketball Association championship run". It's a stretch, but owner Dan Gilbert certainly is not fond of Golden State.
