Patrick McCaw plans sign Toronto Raptors after Cleveland Cavaliers release

Patrick McCaw plans sign Toronto Raptors after Cleveland Cavaliers release

It appears possible that the Cavs had no intention of keeping McCaw, and signed him to an offer sheet that they knew the Warriors would not match, with the intention of waiving him. The Warriors feel that the Cavs helped McCaw become an unrestricted free agent by signing him away from them and then releasing him.

Free agent guard Patrick McCaw plans to sign with the Toronto Raptors, according to reports from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN and Shams Charania of The Athletic.

He reportedly reached a deal with the Eastern Conference-contending Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

The circumstances were freaky and raised questions about Cleveland's motivation to sign and release a player off the roster of their frequent NBA Finals rival.

The same report also notes that Hudson-Odoi will not take up the latest offer of a new contact from Chelsea . Very good defensive phase, but very good'. "I know only that for me he is a very important player".


National Basketball Association officials will speak to Patrick McCaw's representatives Thursday, as the league begins an investigation centered on McCaw and the Cavaliers, according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News. After passing on the Golden State Warriors' qualifying offer this summer, McCaw found it hard to find another offer. The contract was for two years and $6 million, but the Cavs gave themselves an out and waived McCaw after just three games.

The New York Times' Marc Stein reported that the league's review of the situation involving the Cavs is just beginning.

McCaw showed flashes in a limited role for the Warriors in his first two seasons and is yet another young wing with plenty of length for the Raptors to add to their deep rotation.

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