National Basketball Association to Investigate Signing, Quick Release of Patrick McCaw by Cavaliers

However, McCaw played in only three games with the Cavaliers, averaging 1.7 points in 17.7 minutes, before Cleveland released him Sunday. Golden State was vocal about wanting him back but ultimately declined to match Cleveland's offer.

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

McCaw was released by Cleveland on January 6 just a week after joining the Cavs, due to the Warriors declining to match an offer sheet for the 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 Warriors held McCaw's rights as a restricted free agent, then elected not to match the two-year, $6 million offer sheet he signed December 28 with the Cavaliers - with the potential luxury-tax ramifications among the many factors in their thinking. "I don't know that there's been a totally non-guaranteed offer sheet before".

The Warriors, who weren't interested in McCaw and allowed him to stretch his free agency into the start of the season, now want the league to look into Cleveland's actions.

Some have speculated the Cavaliers made the moves to spite the franchise that beat them in three of the past four NBA Finals.
