National Basketball Association reviewing McCaw's short stay with Cavs

Patrick McCaw's short stay with Cleveland Cavaliers has raised eyebrows around the National Basketball Association, and the league itself is looking into the matter, according to multiple reports.

The Cleveland Cavaliers recently offered a two-year, $6 million non-guaranteed contract, which the Golden State Warriors did not match, despite reports that the team would match "any offer" for the young guard.

The Golden State Warriors are unlikely to be one of those teams, as they are well in the luxury tax. The New York Times first reported the Warriors' complaint and investigation.

McCaw spent parts of his first two years of his National Basketball Association career with the Warriors, but was not re-signed during the offseason as a restricted free agent.

How long the league's review will take has not been determined, nor is it clear what the Warriors might be seeking. The Cavaliers signed him on December 30 to a two-year, $6 million non-guaranteed deal, with the Warriors choosing not to match those terms.

McCaw signed with the Cavs at the end of December, played three games for them, and then was waived before Monday's deadline that would make contracts guaranteed. He scored five points in the three appearances with the Cavaliers.

He was sent that same night to the Warriors and in his two seasons, averaged 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists.
