NBA looking into circumstances of McCaw signing

McCaw, the third-year wing who won two straight championships with the Warriors, has had a dramatic free agency ride since declining the Warrior's offer to sign him this past summer.

A person with knowledge of the situation said Tuesday that the league has opened a review at the request of the Golden State Warriors, the team that McCaw, a former UNLV player, had spent the previous two seasons with.

Here is the catch: the contract was non-guaranteed, and a week after signing him, Cleveland released him. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no details of the probe have been revealed publicly.

It appears the Warriors believe the Cavaliers, in conjunction with McCaw, acted in bad faith in order to free him from Golden State control.

The New York Times first reported that the National Basketball Association would review the matter. It's unclear how long the NBA's review will take, or what - if anything - the Warriors are seeking.

The Warriors declined to match McCaw's offer sheet almost seven months after rejecting their $1.7 million qualifying offer and two-year, $5.2 million deal, which included a non-guaranteed deal his second year.

Now, the 23-year-old is an unrestricted free agent.

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

It turned out though, that $6M was also too much for the Cavaliers, so they waived McCaw before his deal would become fully guaranteed.
